Scary Stories to Tell In the Dark by Alvin Schwartz

By Alvin Schwartz

This spooky addition to Alvin Schwartz's well known books on American folklore is full of stories of eerie horror and darkish revenge that may make you bounce with fright.

There is a narrative right here for everybody -- skeletons with torn and tangled flesh who roam the earth; a ghost who takes revenge on her assassin; and a haunted apartment the place each evening a bloody head falls down the chimney.

Stephen Gammell's wonderfully creepy drawings completely trap the temper of greater than dozen frightening tales -- or even frightening songs -- all correct for analyzing by myself or for telling aloud within the dark.

Sample text

And because it has been inspired it does not at all attempt to slavishly imitate her. In Wolff’s terms I have sought to offer a relationship with Arendt and I have not at all attempted to provide any information about her or her book. That would make Arendt a museum exhibit. This book can be read as a journey from Arendt (and therefore because of Arendt; it is a journey which is grateful to Arendt) since whilst I agree with Arendt’s account of what has happened to the vita activa I find it difficult to share her belief that with enough effort the vita contemplativa can be reconstituted such that a truly human condition might be able to emerge.

It is for these reasons that Arendt clings to the vita contemplativa while refusing to accept that it has some privileged insight on some privileged and all-inclusive standard of the absolute truth. Arendt contends that the engagement of the vita activa and the thinking of the vita contemplativa do not stand one beneath the other but, instead, ‘might correspond to two altogether different central human concerns’ (Arendt 1958:18). Only in this way can the presence of differences and of others be accepted and built upon not just destroyed.

Or even whatever is simply taken to exist in common. This is even though ‘A virtually infinite variety of arrangements is possible within the general mode of the natural artifice’ (Heller 1990:145). However Heller contends that this conceit of nature is liable to collapse ‘when and where the “natural” appears as artificial; a man-made construct that can be deconstructed’ (Heller 1990:145). ) ‘The deconstruction of the “natural artifice” is believed to go with the destruction of the whole of tradition: of all beliefs, convictions, certainties, morals, religions, meaningful ways of life’ (Heller 1990:147).
