We are simply delighted to bring you our in-depth analysis of the comic book series Promethea written by the legendary Alan Moore. The book’s stunning art is by the phenomenally talented J.H. Williams III and Mick Gray. It also boasts incredible artwork by Charles Vess and colors by Jeromy Cox. The comic book series was originally published as 32 issues by America’s Best Comics from 1999 to 2005.

Alan Moore is every bit as fascinating as any character he penned for the page. For some interesting insight into the mind of Alan Moore check out our Promethea YouTube playlist containing not only the documentary “The Mindscape of Alan Moore” but also several interviews with the writer.

A huge part of Promethea’s magick is delivered through it’s art. Be sure to check out the artwork of J.H. Williams III, Mick Gray, Charles Vess and Jeromy Cox.

The pages of Promethea are dripping with mythology and Western esoteric magick! Hermeticism and Hellenic Egyptian magick play a central role in the series. Aleister Crowley’s Thelema also figures prominently in the series. If the story has piqued your interest in this path of ceremonial magick, please be sure to check out our book recommendations in the show notes, as well as links to free downloads at TheWytchFiles.com!

A Brief History of English and American Literature
Henry A. BEERS (1847 – 1926)

Henry Augustin Beers, native of Buffalo, NY and professor of English at Yale, with the help of John Fletcher Hurst (1834-1903), Methodist bishop and first Chancellor of American University, has written a sweeping thousand 900 year history of English literature, up to the end of the 19th century. Although at times biased and sometimes misguided (as when he dismisses Mark Twain as a humorist noteworthy in his time but not for the ages), his research is sound and his criticism is interesting and quite often very balanced. In addition, the last chapter of each part is Hurst’s synopsis of religious and theological literature in the language. This book is interesting for its point of view, but also useful as a jumping-off point for those interested in reading the classics. (Summary by Kalynda)
