Aleister Crowley. he's an acclaimed poet, chess grasp, world-class
mountaineer, and possibly the main passionately liberated guy in
Victorian London. His genuine devotion, notwithstanding, is magic...and the
search for his personal soul.
An notorious fourteenth century Arabic e-book of magic survives the
centuries to spawn the formation of a hidden society of magicians in
London. The Order is led through occult student MacGregor Mathers and his
wife Moina, who declare to be involved with mystery masters that give
them ever-increasing magical wisdom and tool. For numerous years
the Order grows, drawing on new individuals from the giants of British
commerce, artwork, and literature.
Suddenly, on the peak of the Order's impression, MacGregor and Moina
appear to lose touch with the key masters. They movement to Paris and
ignore the Order's plea for extra teachings and better initiations. The
London hotel threatens to sever ties with them and make magical
contact with the key masters themselves. 5 very well-known members
lead the revolt:
*the poet William Butler Yeats
*the playwright Maude Gonne
*Bram Stoker, writer of Dracula
*Florence Farr, the main acclaimed actress of her day
*and one of many wealthiest ladies on the planet, tea heiress Annie Horniman.
Crowley naively joins the Order at first of the revolt.
Blinded through his extreme non secular aspirations, he's not in basic terms drawn
into the clash, yet unwittingly turns into the catalyst that brings
about their destruction.
