• "From the Bible through Dante and up to Treblinka and Guantánamo Bay, here is a rich source for nightmares." --The New York Times Book ReviewThree thousand years of visions of Hell, from the ancient Near East to modern AmericaFrom the Hebrew Bible's shadowy realm of Sheol to twenty-first-century visions of Hell on earth, The Penguin Book of Hell takes us through three thousand years of eternal damnation. Along the way, you'll take a ferry ride with Aeneas to Hades, across the river Acheron; meet the Devil as imagined by a twelfth-century Irish monk--a monster with a thousand giant hands; wander the nine circles of Hell in Dante's Inferno, in which gluttons, liars, heretics, murderers, and hypocrites are made to endure crime-appropriate torture; and witness the debates that raged in Victorian England when new scientific advances cast doubt on the idea of an eternal hereafter. Drawing upon religious poetry, epics, theological treatises, stories of miracles, and accounts of saints' lives, this fascinating volume of hellscapes illuminates how Hell has long haunted us, in both life and death.

  • The walking dead from 15 centuries haunt this compendium of ghostly visitations through the ages, exploring the history of our fascination with zombies and other restless souls.   Since ancient times, accounts of supernatural activity have mystified us. Ghost stories as we know them did not develop until the late nineteenth century, but the restless dead haunted the premodern imagination in many forms, as recorded in historical narratives, theological texts, and personal letters. The Penguin Book of the Undead teems with roving hordes of dead warriors, corpses trailed by packs of barking dogs, moaning phantoms haunting deserted ruins, evil spirits emerging from burning carcasses in the form of crows, and zombies with pestilential breath. Spanning from the Hebrew scriptures to the Roman Empire, the Scandinavian sagas to medieval Europe, the Protestant Reformation to the Renaissance, this beguiling array of accounts charts our relationship with spirits and apparitions, wraiths and demons over fifteen hundred years, showing the evolution in our thinking about the ability of dead souls to return to the realm of the living—and to warn us about what awaits us in the afterlife.For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-spe...

  • En los últimos años, Halloween se celebra en varios países no anglosajones, influenciados por la cultura pop y audiovisual. En España, por poner un ejemplo, cada año se ha acogido a esta festividad como prólogo del día 1, fiesta nacional. Los niños se disfrazan, los adultos acuden a parques de atracciones, restaurantes, y demás locales, todo decorado con motivos de Halloween. Pero, ¿sabemos lo que estamos celebrando?.Este ensayo nos ayuda a entender la festividad de Halloween, desde sus orígenes celtas, hasta la manera de celebrarlo en la actualidad. Explicaremos leyendas, recetas de cocina, aspectos de la festividad, simbología, películas propicias para esa noche, y de temática propia, que han hecho una exportación de Halloween por todo el mundo, todo para celebrar comercialmente una noche que, si los norteamericanos no la inventaron, la tomaron prestada para comerciar con ella.

There are many websites that claim to tell the story of Hallowe'en, but the vast majority have managed to jumble history, surmise and fiction into a range of fanciful concoctions.In fact, Hallowe'en is the oldest celebration in the West, going back at least 3,000 years.
