Occultism in the Shakespeare Plays: Now Available!



This quite short work is an excellent example of the type of Theosophical writing common in its era; a remarkably detailed study of some of Shakespeare's plays and the occultism and references to omens, witches, and so forth present therein; it labels "The Tempest" as the most outwardly occult (which I happen to agree with) and also speaks about "Julius Caesar", "Macbeth", and a few other works. It should be noted that the Baconian tradition of Shakespeare was also studied within Theosophy and the topic of theater is of note within the occult because of its lycanthropic importance; the concept of illusion and deliberate misrepresentation of reality.
