Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A detailed account of the sensational murder trial that shocked Victorian Scotland and ended in Glasgow’s last public hanging. In July of 1865, Dr. Edward William Pritchard was put on trial for the murder of his wife and mother-in-law. He slowly poisoned his wife, Mary Jane, while pretending to treat her for a mysterious illness. When her mother came to help care for her, Pritchard poisoned her, as well. He then falsified both women’s death certificates. Over the course of the trial, dramatic testimonies exposed Pritchard’s scandalous past, his infidelity, and the suspicious death of a servant girl he was suspected of killing years earlier. Pritchard was found guilty and was sentenced to death by hanging in Glasgow Green.

Rating Book: 4.9/5 (691 users)

Download or read book The Sorcerer's Apprentice written by Jack Zipes and published by Princeton University Press. This book was released on 2019-07-09 with total page 432 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A diverse new anthology that traces the meaning and magic of the sorcerer’s apprentice tale throughout history “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” might conjure up images of Mickey Mouse from the Disney film Fantasia, or of Harry Potter. As this anthology reveals, however, “sorcerer’s apprentice” tales—in which a young person rebels against, or complies with, an authority who holds the keys to magical powers—have been told through the centuries from classical times to today. This collection brings together more than fifty sorcerer’s apprentice stories by a plethora of writers, including Ovid, Sir Walter Scott, and the Brothers Grimm. In an extensive introduction, fairy-tale scholar Jack Zipes discusses the significance of the apprentice stories, the contradictions in popular retellings, and the importance of magic as a tool of resistance against figures who abuse their authority. Twenty specially commissioned black-and-white illustrations by noted artist Natalie Frank bring the stories to visual life.
