Books for the Third-year Seminar

Yesterday I spent almost half a day searching books concerning wizards and witches which, I think, must be helpful for the term paper of the third year seminar sudents. At first I put the word "witch" on the network of Amazon, and there appeared over 2400 entries.

Sorting out books on the screen for the purpose, I was really amazed the numbers of the stories dealing with wiches, or books pulished under titles of "witches" or "witch craft". There are numerous books written in Japanese as well as in English. Through the searching I have no doubt convinced thet we are likely to love witches better than wizards. It is very interesting and I think it is worth trying to investigate this phenomenon.

Of course I myself love witches very much. Especially I have been affected by ogresses which make their entrance into Japanese folktales like "An Ogress and a Cowherd" "Three Charms". Actually you should rather call them "yamanba" in Japanese. Why? I know why I love them. I very much sympathize with them deeply, because they are in solitude and exist on the periphrey.
