English Transformation Drafts

This is just a collection of my drafts through the following month or so. These are the drafts that will lead up to my final transformation from my base text The Werewolf by Angela Carter. It involves witches, werewolves, and curses. I will include the plan as well.


6. Section One - Draft 5

People are different here,
No beasts linger in the woods,
Trying to catch the old drunkard as he stumbles his way past.
No sinister shadows,
Cast against the wooden logs of their houses.
No small children cry, afraid,
As they dance around the hot, glowing fires,
Happy with their choices.


The devil may be real,
Or not.
Believed to be an apparition,
Appeared to only those who have sinned.
Therefore the good people have no fear.
The worst beasts that are known of,
Are the few lone wolves.
Living out their last days in the forest,
Like the bones of the dead,
Buried in their separate graves.


They do believe in witches,
Since the Witch-Hunter of the Citadel arrived,
He found three, yesterday,
Three innocent women accused of heinous sins.
All they had done,
Was be better,
Than their neighbour.
A black cat should mean nothing, but it proved,
To be the most damning of evidence.


Three women,
Put to death, yesterday,
Burned at the stake, bound to burning wood,
As their skin melted clean off.
Their barren houses,
Burnt to the ground,
No man went pilfering,
Through the wreckages,
No man wanted to touch,
That which was tainted by sin.
