My analysis of the above print, ‘The Witches Sabbath’ by Hans Baldung Grien (1510), for my Folk Belief and Witch Hunts class got its mark back on the eve of the grading strike that my professor is engaging in. Result? A3. Two points away from the highest mark, and apparently good enough that in her comments she called it “insightful and engaging.”And this is the professor that warned us that none of us should expect A-bracket marks. That’s my confidence boost for the day sorted.
Next for Folk Belief and Witch Hunts, a 2,000 word paper comparing Bram Stoker’s character Dracula to traditional Romanian and English vampire mythology. Love.
