Student Narrative

My project is a collection of original research poetry and illustrations examining the history of the witch craze throughout Europe and the US, and the creation of the witch as a literary character. I used the poems to look at the complexities of the attitudes towards women during witch accusations, and how the witch character has evolved throughout time to represent society's views towards women. Beginning as a stereotype to show the "monstrous" nature of women living outside of gender norms, the character has shifted to represent a reclamation of power.
