This blog is about the world of magic and the way we believe in it, what reflects itself everywhere. I, being a philologist, would like to explore the reflection of witchcraft in literature and folklore of different nations. Ready for a witchy literary adventure?
This is not a question, this is a try to explain myself why I like to read about magical stuff or watch it. Well, as far as I remember, I was fond of such things since childhood. Thanks to my Mum, who was always interested, on a hobby level, in astrology, stones properties, chiromancy and so on. It was not that she especially presented all her interests to me, but I am myself used to pick up some book on these topics and read it. It was all curiosity of course. Why not? This is indeed interesting and deserves our attention.
Idon't specifically like a witchcraft or all this black magic things or especially to do it (no way), but as soon as it exists in our world and it is something what we can't explain yet - it becomes an object of our observation and even research.
As soon as I am a philologist, I have a special interest in witchcraft. How many of the writers and poets made magic and wizardry as part of their works! I can't leave the fact that this theme can also inspire to create. You can see different dimensions of it's presentation in the literature, however some books can be called "magical", if you take an example of Harry Potter, the latest top book (hence, movie) about the world of witches and wizards.
In the next posts I would like to explore the witchcraft, and everything related to it, from the point of view of the literature. All the best to me and hope to realize my witch explorer potential!
