Comments by
Aleister
Crowley:

     We wandered back to Boleskine, after arranging with a doctor named Percival Bott to come and stay with us and undertake the accouchement. I asked my Aunt Annie to preside over the household, and an old friend of Gerald’s (Kelly) and mine, Ivor Back, at this time a surgeon at St. George’s, to make up the house party. Ivor Back is one of the most amusing companions possible, to those who can stand him. He knows a good deal about literature and had published in The Hospital magazine some of the poems in which I had celebrated various diseases. I dedicated my In Residence, a collection of my undergraduate verses, to him, and he collaborated with me to a certain extent in the composition of various masterpieces of the lighter kind.

Reviews:

     And what shall one say of Mr. Aleister Crowley’s “In Residence”?  His serious verse has given evidence of marked individuality and a very considerable, if undisciplined imagination.  But this is that intolerable thing—an unhumorous man at play.  If Wordsworth had wooed the muse of Calverley, the result might have been somewhat like this.

The Academy and Literature, 3 December 1904.

          Oh Crowley, name for future fame!
                   (Do you pronounce it Croully?)
          Whate’er the worth of this your mirth
                   It reads a trifle foully.
          Cast before swine these pearls of thine.
                   O, great Aleister Crōlley
          “Granta” to-day, not strange to say,
                   Repudiates them wholly
Granta, date unknown.
