Description - The Magical Dilemma of Victor Neuburg by Jean Overton Fuller
Jean Overton Fullers humane biography of Aleister Crowleys disciple, lover, fellow magician, poet & seer; the literary god father of Dylan Thomas. Really two books in one. Firstly a record of one mans extraordinary journey to magical enlightenment. Secondly the story of the Aleister Crowley, the magus who summoned Neuburg to join him in the quest. The book opens with the authors entry into the group of young poets including Dylan Thomas and Pamela Hansford Johnson. They gather around Victor Neuburg in 1935 when he is poetry editor of the Sunday Referee. Gradually the author becomes aware of his strange and sinister past, in which Neuburg was associated in magic with Aleister Crowley. Neuburg had been Crowleys partner in magical rituals in the desert and in rites even more dangerous and controversial. The author sought out the truth behind the rumours and with her intuitive understanding of deeper things presents a sympathetic and compelling biography.
