You might be right...Cabell definatly had artist sensibilities. Like Joyce his prose was trying to burst the confines of print to model some new situation...he didn't do it as well as McBob says Finnigans's Wake does.

Cabell, in what I guess you could call manippien fashion, alluded to something (crowley's rite) as if he, the author had indepth knowledge about it, and you the reader, didn't.
Crowley didn't really get it that Cabell, though philosophical, Cabell was basically a writter trying to intrigue and entertain people (and occasionally get a laugh.)

You're clearly more familiar with the subject (and I'm not fundamentally opposed to learning that Crowley didn't get something), but could it be that Crowley recognized Cabell's trick -- and recognized that that is THE basic "trick" -- and played along to give seeming creedence to Cabell's 'insider knowledge'??
