Synopsis

This excellent new book tells the story of the Lancashire witches in detail, fleshing out the characters and events in a way which really helps us to understand what sort of people they were, and what their world was like at the time of their persecution. Uniquely, the author also explores how the witches have been portrayed through the centuries, revealing that their image has changed dramatically over the 400 years since the infamous trials. In folklore, literature, art, theatre and elsewhere, they have been variously seen as demons, objects of pity, figures of fun, cartoonish caricatures and beautiful temptresses. But what has remained constant is our fascination with them. The lure of the Lancashire witches, it seems, is as strong as ever.
