Do What Thou Wilt A Life of Aleister Crowley
Do What Thou Wilt A Life of Aleister Crowley- Aleister Crowley was a blustery coward, an arrogant, misogynistic racist with fascist leanings, and a callous user, as often threatened by his sexuality as he claimed to be liberated by it. But he was also a groundbreaking poet and an iconoclastic visionary whose literary and cultural legacies extend far beyond the limits of his reputation.
Do What Thou Wilt A Life of Aleister Crowley explains the life of Aleister Crowley. It is a controversial, frightening mixture of egomania and self-loathing, has inspired passionate–but seldom fair–assesments by historians. Sutin, by treating Crowley as a cultural phenomenon, and not simply a sorcerer or a charlatan, convinces skeptic readers that the self-styled “Beast” remains a fascinating study in eccentricity.
