Storytelling Alchemy provides tools and exercises designed to help you change your relationship to your personal stories in a way that is empowering and transformative. Included here are: Journaling and creative writing exercises Prompts for reflection and self-examination Tips on dream analysis Simple spells and enchantments for insight, transformation, and lasting change

"What emerges from Kachru's fine work is the potential demarcation of an entire field, rather than merely the fruitful exploration of a topic. . . . [Kachru] is to be congratulated for having taken us as far as he already has and for doing so in so stimulating and so productive a fashion." -- World Englishes "A potent addition to theoretical, sociolinguistic, attitudinal and methodological explorations vis-à-vis the spread and functions of, and innovations in, English from the viewpoint of a non-Western scholar." -- The Language Teacher Winner of the Joint First Prize, Duke of Edinburgh English Language Book Competition of the English-Speaking Union of the Commonwealth, 1987

Dr Abraham begins by examining the currency of alchemical thought in Britain and Europe and its presence in the work of such poets as Shakespeare, Jonson, Donne, Herrick, Milton and Dryden. She then moves on to a detailed examination of Marvell's long poems, demonstrating the extensive presentation of the alchemical process. Other important English alchemists are cited including Thomas Tymme, Robert Fludd and Thomas Vaughan.This is a highly original and stimulating study which brings out hitherto undiscovered meanings and relationships. The book is illustrated with 32 emblems from the works of the Renaissance and 17th-century alchemists, and will henceforth be an essential text for serious students of Marvell.
