The Further Poetry of Victor Anderson

A companion volume to Anderson's award-winning first book of poetry, Thorns of the Blood Rose, the author selected the poems contained in Lilith's Garden for publication before his death (in 2001). Picking up where the first book left off, these poems explore themes of love, death, the beauty of the natural world, and devotions to the Goddess and God in their many guises. Some of the poems which were deemed too scandalous for inclusion in the previous work are published here for the first time.

Victor H. Anderson was the seminal teacher of the Feri tradition. An extraordinary poet, priest, and shaman, he trained some of the most influential voices in neo-Paganism, including Starhawk and Gwydion Pendderwen. Blind since childhood, Anderson began teaching the tradition in the 1950s in California and rose to fame with the publication of his first book of poetry, Thorns of the Blood Rose, in 1970.


"Victor was a true bard, as evidenced by the beautiful legacy of poetry he infused into the Feri Tradition." -- Witch Eye magazine

"Victor Anderson lives still in these fierce loving poems, in which the simplest words burst forth into brilliant flower. Sonorous and elegant, his poems capture the pagan heart." -- Patricia Monaghan, award-winning author of Seasons of the Witch

"Each poem is an initiation, an epiphany, a spell." -- Mike Nichols, celebrated author of The Witches' Sabbats

"This is a symphony of Victor's great divine love for the Goddess, expressed in ecstasy. Lilith's Garden is a fitting companion to Thorns of the Bloodrose." -- Anaar, author of The White Wand


"Victor was one of my first teachers in the Craft. I will always be grateful for the worlds he opened up for me... He was fierce, passionate, powerful, real. An inspired poet, he was a brilliant creator of myth and liturgy. He was allied spiritually with all the indigenous traditions of the planet; a true shaman." -- Starhawk, bestselling author of The Spiral Dance

"My interview with the poet and shaman Victor Anderson...was among the most mysterious of my encounters. His was the only story I heard that was clearly from the land of faery. It was pure poetry." -- Margot Adler, Drawing Down the Moon

"Victor wrote beautifully poetic rituals for the Faerie Tradition. Over the years, a number of remarkable people were trained by Victor... The influence of the shamanic tradition now called 'Feri' has been enormous." -- Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard

"Victor Anderson, the most important exponent of the Feri/Faery Faith in America, is also the person responsible for bringing it to this country. Victor has been a teacher and friend to some of the most influential personalities in the Craft today...

"The name of Victor Anderson is mentioned with a great deal of reverence, as he is one of the few direct descendents of this ancient faith. He is a keeper of the flame." -- Ellen Evert Hopman, People of the Earth (with Lawrence Bond)

Bits of its teachings, such as the use of the magic whistle for summoning spirits, are alluded to in other texts. Another key element of its ritual, the elaborate Seal of God, has been found in texts and amulets throughout Europe.

Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
