Summary
A ghoulish anthology of fantastical and ghostly poems by some of the world's finest poets spans some three thousand years of literary explorations of the supernatural in works by Homer, Ovid, Edgar Allan Poe, Emily Dickinson, Virgil, Charles Baudelaire, Randall Jarrell, and James Merrill, among others. 15,000 first printing.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: A delightfully ghoulish array of specters and sorceresses, witches and ghosts, hags and apparitions haunt these pages–a literary parade of phantoms and shades to add to the revelry of All Hallow’s Eve.

From Homer to Horace, Pope to Poe, Randall Jarrell to James Merrill, Poems Bewitched and Haunted draws on three thousand years of poetic forays into the supernatural. Ovid conjures the witch Medea, Virgil channels Aeneas’s wife from the afterlife, Baudelaire lays bare the wiles of the incubus, and Emily Dickinson records two souls conversing in a crypt, in poems that call out to be read aloud, whether around the campfire or the Ouija board. From ballads and odes, to spells and chants, to dialogues and incantations, here is a veritable witches’ brew of poems from the spirit world.
