Aleister Crowley *

a.k.a. Edward Alexander Crowley

Author Code: EEAC

Born: Oct. 12, 1875 - Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, England

Died: Dec. 1, 1947 - Hastings, England

Educated at Trinity College, Cambridge, where he studied philosophy, Crowley was nevertheless more interested in literature and spent much of his time reading and writing poetry. In 1898, while still at Cambridge, he published Aceldama, A Place to Bury Strangers, his first book of poetry. Having inherited a small fortune from his father, Crowley left school without a degree and began traveling in India and the Himalayas. Having developed a taste for the occult and mysticism, he joined the Order of the Golden Dawn in 1898. He continued his travels around the world, visiting China, Mexico, Egypt and other parts of Africa on his mystical and sexual quests. By 1903, he had published seventeen books, primarily poetry, none of which had generated much interest. He married in 1904, but divorced in 1909. In 1912, he entered the O.T.O. (Ordo Templi Orientis), an occult society which had been formed in Germany and which emphasized magic with sexual orientation. A confirmed bisexual, Crowley became head of the British O.T.O. At the outbreak of the First World War, Crowley traveled to America where he edited the pro-German publication, The Fatherland, which he would later claim had been done under the auspices of British Intelligence. In 1920, Crowley went to Sicily where he developed the occult Law of Thelema and spent time experimenting in magic rituals, sexual magic and drugs. In 1922, he published his first novel, The Diary of a Drug Fiend, which was moderately successful, primarily because of its scandalous nature. He was ordered to Leave Italy in 1923 and began another sexual trek in North Africa. In 1929, he published Magick in Theory and Practice in Paris and this led to his expulsion from France. He eventually returned to Britain in the 1930's and was subsequently declared bankrupt. Addicted to heroin, Crowley was living off handouts from friends until his death in a Hastings boarding house in 1947. Once described as "The Wickedest Man in the World" by the British press, Crowley's other works include Mortadello, or the Angel of Venice (1912), Household Gods (1912), Songs for Italy (1923), Moonchild (1929), The Stratagem and Other Stories (1929), The Book of the Law (1938), The City of God: A Rhapsody (1943), The Book of Thoth (1944) and The Last Ritual (1947).
