The Book of Hallowe'en

Capa
Boston Lothrop, Lee & Shepard Co., 31 de out. de 2014 - 96 páginas

 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.

This is often off-topic, discussing matters that have little or nothing to do with Halloween. The narrative structure makes for an awkward read, and for the most part I struggled to concentrate. Not very engaging. Ler resenha completa
