     “In July I was made the editor of The International, a monthly which had the distinction of being the only publication in the United States with a genuine claim to represent the best literary tradition.

     “During the three Chokmah days of my control of the paper I devoted every energy to proclaiming the Law of Thelma in its pages both directly and indirectly.

“My first important step in this direction, the thin end of the wedge, was an article ‘The Revival of Magick’ which ran serially, ending in November.”

 

                                 — ALEISTER CROWLEY

                               The Confessions of Aleister Crowley

 


 

     Aleister Crowley’s essay “The Revival of Magick” was originally published under the pseudonym “The Master Therion” in a four part series in The International: A Review of Two Worlds from August through November 1917.  Crowley’s affiliation with The International occurred during his five-year stay in America from 1914 through 1919.  Not long after his arrival, Crowley found himself in financial straits and found a partial solution in the form of George Sylvester Viereck, a writer and editor who owned two journals, The Fatherland and The International.

The Fatherland was a propaganda journal funded by the German government designed to promote pro-German thought and to help keep America out of World War I.  Crowley began by writing pro-German articles for The Fatherland and soon began writing for The International as well in July 1915.

Over the ensuing years he contributed various articles and poetry and became managing editor of The International in August of 1917.  At this point the journal became a primary outlet for Crowley’s writings and he began writing a large portion of the journal employing various pseudonyms to disguise the fact that he was the primary contributor.

Besides being an  outlet for his poetry and short stories, The International provided him a vehicle to advocate the message of Thelema through such essays as “The Revival of Magick.”
