good to see this excellent French writer getting translated - lots of
material folks will not be familiar with; sigils, texts and more. We've

and what they've been looking at.
Want to know more about magic? Don't bother learning Hebrew!
If you have linguistic talents, then:
Learn French &/or Italian and read a lot more grimoires than the 'Revival'
learn German and access tons of good quality academic work etc;
learn Portuguese or Spanish and access the traditions of Cuba or Brazil.
break out of the confines of the English speaking occult revival. Its too
limiting, and only encourages commercialism and charlatanry to hold things
back decade by decade.
You can push the boundaries rather than accept them.
