    One thought on “Apocalyptic Witchcraft”

    1. This book, whilst being something that needs slow digesting, is very poetic, but is also not without punch. It discusses mythology, history, nature and man and how we are linked through this Apocalyptic Witchcraft,threaded with references to the goddess Inanna, in an Age where the Apocalypse itself has inexorably begun, with some asleep, without noticing. It touches on how out of touch we all are as a Species when it comes to what is happening to Nature, which in turn, is a reflection of ourselv [...]

    2. this book is well written and weaves myth, history, and ritual into a rich story with many threads. it has some really beautiful moments, but a lot of it wasn't really my thinge excellent premise that we depend on the earth, magic arises from specific land bases, and we therefore must defend the last bits of intact-ish land from being destroyed by industrial capitalism, while i absolutely agree, did not blow my mind or make up for the long sections about menstruation, the hunt, ted hughes, and t [...]

    3. A very engaging look on what it means to be a practicing witch in the modern age. Peter Grey draws from many different sources for inspiration (which you can see for yourself in the Select Bibliography included at the end). And it is Grey's wide sense of inspiration that helps imbue the text with relevance. Although not as revolutionary as I was led to believe, there is still a lot of food for thought contained within. Each chapter seems devoted to dissecting an idea or concept associated with w [...]

    4. When I first got this book I was hoping it was a continuation of things that were explored in The Red Goddess, in a sense it touched on some of it but overall it goes on to other things. My first impressions when I started reading it, particularly when I came to the manifesto, was how much it seemed like I was reading Anton Laveys Satanic Bible back when I was a kid. Not a bad thing at all because it is forceful in its presentation and it makes you think. The whole book makes you think, about yo [...]

    5. Or perhaps 3 and a half. It's not life changing and not half as original as it thinks it is but it's a welcome antidote to "fluffier" writers. Genuinely inspiration sections are followed by slightly toe-curling passages and vice versa. The chapter on Ted Hughes, however, is wholly excellent and sets a benchmark in balancing polemic and attentive, visionary reading that I wish the rest of the book could have matched. A curate's (witch's?) egg, then.

    6. Apocalyptic Witchcraft is a superb piece of work with its look at history and how that history pertains to modern witchcraft. I honestly feel this should be required reading for those interested in, or involved with, modern witchcraft. Definitely check this one out.

    7. The book has imperfections but the last chapter is so beautiful and heartbreaking that I am just gonna give it five stars. Overall, a must have.

    8. A manifesto on what it means to be a practicing witch in the modern age of apocalypse. Grey weaves together myth, legend, poetry, history and popular culture in this treatise of authentic living. Very inspirational.

    9. A fine manifesto of sorts regarding the importance of experiential witchcraft in the age of spectral capital, panopticonography, and various odious "isms". It is a call to arms not a grimoire so don't expect to find any practical instruction between its covers. What you will find is plenty of bardic fire to stoke the anemic scented candle that passes for a lot of witchcraft in America today.

    10. Peter Grey has written a manifesto, a polemic, a lucid dismembering of our modern times, evoking the alternative: witchcraft. I am usually not well suited to such writings, since they tend to lack factual evidence and go off into the solipsistic dream-clouds of the author. However, Peter manages to balance this by delivering a truly inspiring text, from where you can dive deeper into its sources, both literal and literally. I certainly don't share all of his views, but admire the vista from some [...]
