Re: The Warlock's Hairy Heart

I really enjoyed this one, the creepiest of the lot. I definitely see a parallel to the Horcruxes, you can't help but see that comparison, imo. I found the notes on Beatrix Bloxam interesting as well as funny. I seem to remember there was someone in the 1700s or 1800s, a woman I think, who tried to sanitise Shakespeare -take out the violent and suggestive parts - I can't remember her name right now, but I thought of that when I read about Mrs Bloxam.

I've looked it up, and it was Thomas Bowdler, from whom we get the word bowdlerise. I was sure I read somewhere that his wife had a hand in the editing though.
