The Witch's Art of Incantation: Spoken Charms, Spells, & Curses in Folk Witchcraft
In its sampling of over 120 individual incantations rooted in the texts and lore of previous centuries, The Witch's Art of Incantation reveals the often overlooked diversity of the incantatory arts: charms that beckon, charms that command, charms that poison, charms that remember, charms that terrify, charms that praise and exalt. Because each charm is accompanied by an approximate date, region, and associated source text, student witches will sharpen their own knowledge of folkloric texts while engaging with these rich and potent spells. The practical methods in the introduction, though seemingly simple, outline rarely discussed methods of incantation, including the construction of the magical listener and pairings with sympathetic and contagious ritual acts. A virtual witch's psalter of incantatory source material, The Witch's Art of Incantation is sure to make a unique addition to the modern folk witch's library.
