"Witches in 1964" by Robert Graves

Graves gives us a long, telescoped view of witches in this 1964 article from Virginia Quarterly.


Readers interested in the works of writers like Margaret Murray, M. R. James, Montague Summers, and Charles Williams will find the piece interesting. 


Graves was writing in 1964, before the recrudescence of witchcraft in the late 1960s as a form of atomized petty bourgeois "dropping out."
