Comments by
Aleister
Crowley:

     I went to Venice in May, breaking the homeward journey at Pallanza, where I wrote Household Gods, a poetical dramatic sketch. It is a sort of magical allegory, full of subtle ironies and mystifications; almost the only thing of its kind I have ever done—which perhaps accounts for my having a sneaking affection for it.
