  • John Dee, Gloriana, and alchemy?

    naturally, i'm reading the book from back to front, and saw the excerpt of Gloriana in The Skrayling Tree. I'm reading it with fresh eyes, since i last read Gloriana as a "kid."

    John Dee as in the receiver of the Enochian angel tables? and is Mr. Moorcock interested in the philosophy of alchemy, too? I am SO into researaching alchemy, and found John Dee and Francis Bacon (amongst many others) in the research.

    not that it matters one way or the other, my question is just curiousity.
    You are all obviously very well read, and my depth of understanding, the depth of exploration of the Multiverse is shallow, indeed, so ... please refrain from laughing..... ;)

        Posted: Tue Mar 08, 2005 11:35 am Post subject: A Preponderance of Dark Enochian Angels at Atlantis

        --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

        Atlantis Bookshop, much like Cecil Court in London having a specific interest in all things Occult, New Age and Supernatural recently dressed their window (which they have a habit of doing from time to time) promoting Dr Dee's Enochian Magik. This is alarming, as the so-called Angels Dee conversed with, with the ill-fated Mr Kelly have a Diabolic than Angelic origin.

        Almost coincidentally Dr Kelly, he whose strange suicide has been suggested as being a murder is to dramatised on Channel 4's The Government Inspector and the British Museum is advertising Gallery talks on magic and mathematics in Elizabethan England! And to top it all off Radio 4's Front row is waffling on about the very same thing in their middle-browed, class-blinkered way.

        Something wicked this way comes and dark Powers are at work, Queenie, again manipulating the world and that they are proponents of the much reviled Establishment. To suggest that the great and the good are up to their Aprons & Trowels in Diabolism is an understatement as the subtext implies a revisionism of History. I address you to the fact that the British Police have invested a great deal of money in a Computer system to determine what happened to Diana. This shall amount to nothing less than what occurred when that 2-faced Public broadcasting corp made a "definitive" computer simulation of JFK. I think we need a revolution so we can oust those Austrian mongrels from debasing the character and true nature of the British People.

                  It reminds my of those typographical effects Mike went in for in some of the JC novels...

                  For example, A Cure for Cancer, chapter 5 "Mystery of Yowling Passenger in Snob Auto".

                  Alfred Bester went in for similar tricks.
