    3.5 stars in actuality, but I d rather veer on the 4 than the 3 because there is good stuff here, just you have to trawl through a lot to uncover it.Divided into 3 parts, bogeyman, lulling and making mock, the book studies the cultural history


  2. says:

    A great look at the things that go bump, and the way these primal fears are dealt with in story, song, and rhyme There s a great section that deals almost entirely with the imagery of eating and stories of cannibalism From there, Warner discusses lul

    Took me some time to finish this book Apparently while I love fairy tales and learning about them I have significantly less attachment to the monsters of storytelling There is a lot of good information in this book and I ...


  4. says:

    No Go the Bogeyman is a disquisition on the emotion of fear, from a point of view at the intersection of psychology with folklore and mythology I might almost have said it s psychoanalytic, but that would be misleading, since Warner is no fan of Freud she thinks


  5. says:

    Fascinating study into fear and the way it s handled throughout history, in myriad forms The first two sections scaring and lulling are a little stronger than the third, making mock, but the whole thing is nonetheless fascinating.Re read as a writing reference.


  6. says:

    This is a re read but confirms how much I love this far reaching compendium of the many ways we scare and soothe ourselves through our stories, songs, and lore The section on lullabies alone is worth the read


  7. says:

    So, hrm, slightlyorganized than From the Beast to the Blonde, but still mostly reads like I did some research on these sources, let s cram them all into a book somehow The section on fighting fear with humor, for example, was about Circe, giants, and bananas So, yeah.


  8. says:

    An exhausting study of the psychological background of the Boogie Man and other mythical entities I cannot understand how such interesting characters can be made to seem so dull


  9. says:

    Why do we love being scared What purpose does the bogeyman serve in our societies This study of the bogeyman and other beasts who go bump in the night is fascinating, highly readable, and erudite.


  10. says:

    A compendium of the masculine archetypes of fear in culture Useful if you are looking for an understanding of stories and how they can play out.
