Images of witches have appeared in various forms throughout history—from evil, wart-nosed women huddling over a cauldron of boiling liquid to hag-faced, cackling beings riding through the sky on brooms wearing pointy hats. From Baba Yaga to Morgan Le Fay, witches have been the villains of stories for ages. The idea of witchcraft has even spilled over to real life, with prejudice against the occult leading to occurrences such as the Salem Witch Trials. It is only recently that witchcraft has been given the opportunity in art and media to be a potentially benevolent force. The late 19th century brought about many thinkers who reframed witch hysteria as a misogynistic practice targeting harmless folk practitioners. These essays inspired L Frank Baum to create the character of Glinda the Good Witch, which became the turning point of how to portray witches. Today we have complex and intelligent characters of all genders that are written as witches, allowed to be shown in shades of dark and light, where their magic is celebrated. Here at Interabang, we also celebrate the magic of the witch this Halloween, with a great selection of books featuring their stories.
