  • Dunn's work is approachable, plain and clear and combines a rare insight of a professional linguist engaged in magical practice. Apart from some intuited techniques that I knew from before, I got some food for thought to combine it via synergy of an arsenal of tools used to achieve aims: mainly in Theurgy and street-magick, when the semiotic web of adverts, entities, energies, psychomorphs, human minds, and interlocking beings, dimensions, genius loci is dense and force one to engage all the tim [...]


  • Patrick Dunn is both a magician and a linguist. With that in mind, just think of this book as A Linguist's Exploration of Magic rather than A Magician's Exploration of Linguistics, as the subtitle would have it. While Magic, Power, Language, Symbol explores magic in some depth, it will only give you a taste of what linguistics is like.Dunn begins the book by discussing how applying semiotics (the study of symbols) can increase a spell's efficacy. From there, he uses linguistics to examine symbol [...]


  • I found this to be quite intellectualized, without practical knowledge or the emphasis of applicability. The consistent use of lingo and the heavy reference to Hebrew and Christianity was somewhat confusing and concerning. It was not what I expected. I was looking for a catalogue or handbook of sorts and, instead, was provided with a scholarly proselytization. I'm not knocking it, but it was not what I needed or wanted. Don't pick this book up as light reading takes a great deal of effort to dec [...]


  • Vapid, formulaic book of the "churned out" variety, an author respinning their experience in one field (in this case high ritual magic) into others (here linguistics). Not entirely without merit, as his experiences have their own value , but what he patently lacks is any novel personal thesis. Weak prosaic bibliography an undergraduate would wince at


  • Excellent book. Practical insights on using incantations, mantras, symbols (and developing your own,) and applying metaphors and myths into magick and ritual. I'm anxious to read his other book, 'Postmodern Magic'.
