The Scarlet Women of Aleister Crowley: The Brilliant, the Beastly,
the Scarlet, and the Muddy
This is Essays No.6, containing no magickal or theoretical essays, and only 33 biographies of the most important women with whom Crowley was involved throughout his life. Who were the women in Aleister Crowley’s life? For so long, with the details of their lives scattered in passing through Crowley biographies or hidden away in private sources, Crowley’s women have presented an enigma to Thelemites. What motivated them? What were they like? Where did they come from? And what ever happened to them when they were no longer with Crowley? For the first time ever, biographies of Crowley’s women are available. J. Edward Cornelius has painstakingly researched, often in sources not widely accessible, to bring you the life histories of the thirty-three female lovers who were most significant to Aleister Crowley (1875–1947). He has collected their biographies here, in this volume of Essays, especially for you to enjoy and ponder. As richly as possible, Cornelius has painted a picture of each woman. He has detailed each woman’s birth, family background, education, activities, antics, achievements, marriages, children, and death. This book contains 38 photos of Scarlet Women, etc.
