Far the worst lack in discretion of compilation is the devotion
of 20 pages to Mr. Aleister Crowley, whose over-blown rhetoric
is so well-known that it surely might have been omitted

From Mr. Aleister Crowley’s strange and mystical books
the editor has selected some 20 pages of poetry which we have
contemplated with considerable astonishment, but little
admiration, although we recognise a Promethean grandeur which
elsewhere we seek vanity.
