This book is intended to give the reader an account of the origin and history of Hallowe'en, how it absorbed some customs belonging to other days in the year,—such as May Day, Midsummer, and Christmas. The context is illustrated by selections from ancient and modern poetry and prose, related to Hallowe'en ideas. Those who wish suggestions for readings, recitations, plays, and parties, will find the lists in the appendix useful, in addition to the books on entertainments and games to be found in any public library. Special acknowledgment is made to Messrs. E. P. Dutton & Company for permission to use the poem entitled "Hallowe'en" from "The Spires of Oxford and Other Poems," by W. M. Letts; to Messrs. Longmans, Green & Company for the poem "Pomona," by William Morris; and to the Editors of The Independent for the use of five poems.

Book Short Summary:

Haunting accounts of real-life exorcisms through the centuries and around the world, from ancient Egypt and the biblical Middle East to colonial America and twentieth-century South Africa A Penguin Classic Levitation. Feats of superhuman strength. Speaking in tongues. A hateful, glowing stare. The signs of spirit possession have been documented for thousands of years and across religions and cultures, even into our time: In 2019 the Vatican convened 250 priests from 50 countries for a weeklong seminar on exorcism. The Penguin Book of Exorcisms brings together the most astonishing accounts: Saint Anthony set upon by demons in the form of a lion, a bull, and a panther, who are no match for his devotion and prayer; the Prophet Muhammad casting an enemy of God out of a young boy; fox spirits in medieval China and Japan; a headless bear assaulting a woman in sixteenth-century England; the possession in the French town of Loudun of an entire convent of Ursuline nuns; a Zulu woman who floated to a height of five feet almost daily; a previously unpublished account of an exorcism in Earling, Iowa, in 1928--an important inspiration for the movie The Exorcist; poltergeist activity at a home in Maryland in 1949--the basis for William Peter Blatty's novel The Exorcist; a Filipina girl "bitten by devils"; and a rare example of a priest's letter requesting permission of a bishop to perform an exorcism--after witnessing a boy walk backward up a wall. Fifty-seven percent of Americans profess to believe in demonic possession; after reading this book, you may too.

Book Short Summary:

An instant classic and eerily prescient cultural phenomenon, from “the patron saint of feminist dystopian fiction” (New York Times). Now an award-winning Hulu series starring Elizabeth Moss. In this multi-award-winning, bestselling novel, Margaret Atwood has created a stunning Orwellian vision of the near future. This is the story of Offred, one of the unfortunate “Handmaids” under the new social order who have only one purpose: to breed. In Gilead, where women are prohibited from holding jobs, reading, and forming friendships, Offred’ s persistent memories of life in the “time before” and her will to survive are acts of rebellion. Provocative, startling, prophetic, and with Margaret Atwood’s devastating irony, wit, and acute perceptive powers in full force, The Handmaid’s Tale is at once a mordant satire and a dire warning.

Book Short Summary:

‘An excellent and comprehensive exploration of this fascinating subject.’ - Philip Carr-Gomm, author Druid Mysteries ‘Samhain was the entry point into winter, a time of hardship, cold and hunger ... It was also a time of introspection, of communing with the dead and the otherworld – themes that have somehow survived, albeit distorted, into the modern era.’ The modern celebration of Halloween is derived from the ancient festival of the dead known in Ireland as Samhain. It is from Ireland that we have inherited most of our Halloween traditions, mainly through the diaspora. Delving into the ancient past, this book uncovers the history of this festival in Britain, Ireland and Brittany, including the forgotten goddess Tlachtga and the sacred temple of the Druids in Co. Meath, where the first Halloween fires were lit.

Excerpt from The Book of Elves and Fairies: For Story-Telling and Reading Aloud and for the Children's Own Reading Robert Burns said in a lettet to Dr. Moore that in his infant and boyish days he owed much to an old woman who lived in his family; for her tales of Brownies, and Fairies, and other won ders cultivated the latent seeds of poetry in the poet's mind. And even the grave Luther said, I would not for any quantity of gold part with the wonderful tales which I have retained from my earliest childhood, or have met with in my progress through life.

Book Short Summary:

THE crate in which the Teddy bears had journeyed from their birthplace in the factory to the big department store had at last arrived and was being unpacked, much to the delight of its occupants. Being packed so tightly in tissue paper meant they had not been able to move, even as much as a whisker. Some made the whole trip standing on their heads! Deft hands now unpacked them. Their coats were brushed until they shone, and their limbs were carefully straightened. Some were dressed in delightful sweaters and peaked toboggan caps, with the cutest leggings to match. Others were arrayed in little cotton overalls and a few in the most fascinating pyjamas. Most of them, however, wore only their own furry coats. And very fine they looked after all the brushing and grooming. THE Teddy bears sold like hot cakes. Never before had any one toy called forth such a demand, and very soon they were being wrapped in fine paper, ribbons and bows. But one afternoon a car stopped out front of the store. Out of it stepped a fashionably dressed woman, and after her sprang out a plump little girl. She had round, rosy cheeks and a pair of round blue eyes. She couldn’t make up her mind as to which bear she wanted, so her mother bought them all for her. This is how the Teddy Bears met Sally and this was the start of their many adventures. What were the adventures you ask? Well, you’ll have to download this book and read them for yourself. If you can’t read, then ask your mother or father to read them to you at bedtime. Only, be sure not to fall asleep in the middle of an adventure! 10% of the profit from the sale of this book will be donated by the publisher to charity. ======= KEYWORDS/TAGS: Teddy Bears, adventures, action, travel, , Peter Pan, Sally, Bedelia, beautiful, Bob, children, discover, mamma, North, nursery, queer, strange, Tim, toys, twins, two, water, well, white, Farm, Valley, Sweet, Visit, John, Tumble, fall, a New Idea, at the Cleaners, Ball, Abscond, Sea Voyage, Literary, Halloween, Dream Child, home
