Martin Wagner gets it Donne again


John Donne

If you've read the excellent Robert Anton Wilson anthology Email to the Universe, you may remember "Sexual Alchemy," which mentions Wilson's theory that English poet John Donne had references to Tantric sex in some of his works. Martin Wagner's latest discovery, "John Donne & Sex Magick," makes the case for occult references in some of the poems. "We are certainly not in the vicinity of proof positive here, but I believe that my thesis has been shown to be plausible and not at all absurd," Wilson writes, and I agree he made a good case.
