What do you know about these non-canonical works? What do you think of them? Is there a source in which I can read them?

Here's the 1917 version by R.H Charles, from chapters I-CVIII

(if there are spaces in the link, remove them):

The Book of Enoch is a personal favorite. I've read through a good portion of it many a time. It has been very influencial in shaping certain beliefs. I'm most familiar with chapters 1-36 which is normally referred to as the "Book of the Watchers", wherein it describes the Grigori and Nephilim. (Fascinating subject if you've never looked into it). It ties in closely with Genesis at parts, as well as tid bits from the Book of Daniel.

There are more books, that go further in depth on other things.

Related to that, Enochian magick is always something I've thought to be interesting. The writings that inspire this come from John Dee and Edward Kelley. It's a lot of evocation magick. Supposedly, using evocation and communicating with spirits, Dee and Kelley were able to compile this information and form it into journals.

Here's a few links:

From what I've understood when studying this and it's history: around the 1880's, Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers picked up where Dee and Kelley left off, and began taking their lessons and forming it into something more ceremonial. The Golden Dawn, I believe, had tried to use Dee's old journals and mauscripts to recreate some of the earlier writings, but they only had one of the diaries and were severely limited in what they could do with it. However, because of the efforts put into reviving Enochian magick- it became better known and a tad bit more popular. Especially when Aleister Crowley joined in. He's usually the one who is given credit for making it modern and wellknown.

The Vision and the Voice was Crowley's most famous piece he wrote on the subject. I'm not quite positive, but I think most of the work was around 1909-1910. It explores more indepth on the subject. You can read it here, if you wish:
