ALEISTER CROWLEY

ABSINTHE: 

 THE GREEN GODDESS

 

 

     The latest book in our series is a new edition of Aleister Crowley’s Absinthe:  the Green Goddess.  Available in a very limited hand-bound edition of only 150 copies.     
  

 

 

   

 

     My best essay was The Green Goddess written in the old Absinthe House itself, and adorning its main theme the philosophical reflections suggested by absinthe with descriptions of the inn, its guests, and the city.

                            — ALEISTER CROWLEY

                                          The Confessions of Aleister Crowley

 

     I walked over to the Absinthe House in my shirt sleeves on one occasion without being in the slightest degree aware of the fact.  My best work was an essay The Green Goddess, descriptive of the Old Absinthe House itself in particular, and the atmosphere of the quarter in general.  It may be regarded as the only rival to The Heart of Holy Russia for literary excellence and psychological insight."

                            — ALEISTER CROWLEY

                                          The Confessions of Aleister Crowley

 


 

     Aleister Crowley’s Absinthe:  the Green Goddess,”  was first published in the February 1918 issue of The International and was considered by him to be one of his best essays.
