Complete Art Of Witchcraft Reviews
Really - if you want to know the anything about the people who brought modern day paganism/witchcraft/Wicca to the forefront, Sybil Leek is one of the authors you want to read. She was the "face of witchcraft" from the late 1950s onward. What a well-versed and interesting person.I originally read this book in the mid-1980s (probably 13 or 14 years old) and recently reacquired a copy. I was interested to see if I was as big of a "fan" as I thought I was. And, I am. One does have to keep in mind the time period in which this book was written to fully appreciate (and in places disregard) some of the attitudes, fears, and biases.
I read this back in the '60s when I was into Astrology.
I have a copy of the first printing of this book from 1973. If you want to study witchcraft or the foundations of modern day wicca, then this book is a must read. My only issue with it, is that the font is rather small to read (I'm not as young as I used to be lol). Sybil Leek was one of the first contributing authors in the pagan community and thus an icon in my opinion. Whether or not you agree with her or her style, this book is still a definite asset to your magickal collection.
Sé que Sybil Leek es una de las brujas más reconocidas de Inglaterra... Pero eso no quita que haya leído algunos libros que, en mi opinión han sido más completos y exaustivos en cuanto al contenido.La magia wicca atrae por su conexión con la naturaleza y por que, al profundizar en sus aguas, se va descubriendo el mundo desde otro punto de vista. Este libro es interesante para quien no ha leído anteriormente otras obras y que quiere tener una idea muy básica de lo que significa ser wicca y demás. Agradable, pero creo que le falta para ser un excelente libro...
I was fortunate enough to meet and interview the authoress when she came to KC, MO in the 60s. She had a way of looking and smiling at you that made you want to stop all thought and yet she couldn't have been sweeter. I read this book after the meet and was very impressed. I think I still have my copy and others that she wrote. I will look for them and re-read them.
Sybil Leek is a master at allowing and bringing you into her life with resonating words. I wish I had the honor to meet her. Biased as I may be, every one of her books are amazing and magickal.
Very charming author. Book contains basically nothing of worth. I am sure that she was the real thing, but she is not much of a writer and it is horribly dated.
engaging reading written with engaging words by an engaging author.
Old Sybil is probably rolling in her grave...
