One thought on “Witches in a Crumbling Empire: Conclusion

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I was nodding along with much of what you said – particularly about removing the metaphors of mechanisation from application to our lives and bodies and loving the land and being its becoming. One of the things I’m questioning at the moment, particularly in light of the continuous connection between Empire and militarism, is the use of military metaphors – such as here ‘call to arms’ ‘fight’ and ‘weapon’. Are these the best choices of words for witches/poets? Or is witchcraft doing something more subversive in precipitating the death throes of Empire?
