     Tahuti being the Lord of Speech, I published number 1 of volume III of The Equinox  on March 21st, 1919.  I arranged for it to contain something like a complete programme of my proposed Operation to initiate, emancipate and relieve mankind.

     The first item is a “Hymn to Pan”, which I believe to be the most powerful enchantment ever written.

 

                                — ALEISTER CROWLEY

                               The Confessions of Aleister Crowley

 


 

     Aleister Crowley’s “Hymn to Pan” was written during a visit to Moscow during the summer of 1913 and represents one of his most powerful and invocative works.  Crowley had originally intended this poem to be published in 1915 in an anthology of his work entitled The Giant’s Thumb which, unfortunately, never saw publication until after his death.  The “Hymn to Pan” saw its first publication in 1919 in The Equinox, Volume III, Number 1.  This was followed in the same year by a separate publication which consisted of a single piece of paper, printed on both sides and then folded to make four pages.  It was printed by the Renshaw Press for the Argus Book Shop in Chicago in an edition of 1,000 copies.

 

     Crowley also included the poem in his Magnum Opus Magick in Theory and Practice published in Paris in 1929/1930.  In 1931, the poet Fernando Pessoa translated the poem into Portuguese and published it in the periodical Presença 33.  Crowley thought enough of this poem to also include it in his anthology of poetry entitled Olla:  An Anthology of Sixty Years of Song published in 1946.

 

     At Crowley’s request, the “Hymn to Pan” was one of several of his works recited at his funeral by his long-time friend and poet Louis Wilkinson.
