    Too bad...

    Yates would have been better...

    So was Arthur Machen (The Great God Pan, The Shining Pyramid, etc.).
    I love w.b. yeats! I never took an interest in the golden dawn before, though I've heard them mentioned quite often. but when I learned that one of my fave poets was in it, it sparked my curiousity. I'm planning on reading some crowley... as soon as I get vacation. Any suggestions on where to start?

    LOL - I confess, I'm not a Crowley fan. But... You might want to read James Stephens, a contemporary of Yates, who had some thoughts about Yates' magical experiments - expressed in The Demi-Gods.

    P.S. The Dublin Temple of the Golden Dawn has his magical regalia and tools on display.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    From what little I know of crowley I never really cared for him either, so I'll start with james stephens instead. Thanks and I don't mind going nerdy, I do study english after all

    Re: Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn?

    I'm honestly a little shocked you hadn't heard about them before. The Golden Dawn was one of the first things I found out about when I researched Wicca's history on the web. The very first thing I did when I was looking into practising Wicca was delve into its history. I also found the "Wicca for the Rest of Us" site fairly early on, too, as a result, since it had a no-nonsense take on the subject. But anyway, the HOGD was an enormous influence on not just Wicca, but the Western esoteric revival in general.
