8x10 Half Hanged Mary Witch Gold on Black Art Print
BEFORE, I WAS NOT A WITCH. BUT NOW I AM ONE
Hand drawn "Half-hanged Mary" lettering, printed in flat gold ink on muscletone black 140lb French Paper stock.
Half-Hanged Mary is Canadian writer Margaret Atwood's tale of patriarchal cruelty and powerful transformation. This 's speaker is Mary Webster, a 17th-century woman hanged for witchcraft in Puritan Massachusetts. Dangling from a tree, choking but not dying, Mary has plenty of time to reflect on the sadistic sexism that got her here—and when she's found alive the next morning, she truly becomes the powerful witch she was falsely accused of being before. This poem first appeared in Atwood's 1995 collection Morning in the Burned House.
