Paris, Center of Yeats' Occult Interests
By the end of the Nineteenth century Paris was a destination of note both for artists and those who were drawn to spiritual mysteries and experiments in the occult. Paris became a hub for occult societies and as such became a notable locale for W.B. Yeats, whose interest in the subject and membership in several secret societies is well-documented. According to R.F. Foster, in his biography W.B. Yeats: A Life, Yeats “needed to belong to organizations and, once attached, to shape them into the image he desired” (89). Foster is here explaining, in part, Yeats’ interest in the occult and in secret societies (the chapter in which he writes the above is titled “Secret Societies, 1889-1891”). Yeats became first a Theosophist and then a member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, an occult order which professes to practice ritual magic.
