The first expert exploration of the haunted houses and authentic ghosts of Kent, this volume is filled with fascinating true ghost stories from times past. Read about the curious case of Anne West of Old Bayhall Manor, who ‘was always worried that she might be buried while yet alive’, or the ‘ghostly old gentleman’ of Cleve Court in Minster, who, when he turns up, is treated ‘more as a guest than a ghost’ - because ‘the dear old thing means no harm’. And there is Lympne Castle, where Underwood once took a party of Ghost Club members: ‘I had just obtained a description of the room, when one of the Club members rushed into the kitchen begging me to accompany her to one of the towers where “something horrible had once taken place”…’.

Discover the haunting history and local lore of one of the oldest counties along the Chesapeake Bay’s Eastern Shore. Strange encounters and ghostly presences haunt the historic streets of Chestertown and the backcountry roads of Kent County. In this fascinating volume, author and local historian D.S. Daniels explores the events behind the ghost lore of Chestertown and Kent County. The centuries-old Kent County Courthouse may be home to the ghost of Esther Anderson, who was sentenced to burn at the stake in 1746. Strange lights float above Caulk's Field, where fallen British marines were buried during the War of 1812. The scent of lavender accompanies the ghost of Aunt Polly at the Geddes-Piper House, while the spectral Tall Man waits for passersby on a lonely country bridge.

A case-centred study of Phantom Hitch-Hikers & Phantom Jaywalkers in Folklore and Fact. Tales of Phantom Hitch-Hikers are found the world over. But is there anything more to them than the staple of contemporary folklore they appear to be? Cases like Blue Bell Hill suggest there is. Here, and in numerous other modern cases, witnesses report vivid and terrifying encounters with solid-looking figures that step into the paths of their vehicles. These events show an affinity with the legendary Phantom Hitch-Hiker, suggesting that far from being mere vestiges of a superstitious folk tradition, they may reflect a genuine but complex phenomenon that continues to manifest in modern times and settings, and challenges our very notions of reality. This book traces Blue Bell Hill's ghost from its roots in folklore to compelling fact, with nearly 50 witness accounts attesting to it as an important modern example of haunting on record, and arguably the foremost case of its kind in the world today.

Of Levinas And Shakespeare

Scholars have used Levinas as a lens through which to view many authors and texts, fields of endeavor, and works of art. Yet no book-length work or dedicated volume has brought this thoughtful lens to bear in a sustained discussion of the works of Shakespeare. It should not surprise anyone that Levinas identified his own thinking as Shakespearean. "The play's the thing" for both, or put differently, the observation of intersubjectivity is. What may surprise and indeed delight all learned readers is to consider what we might yet gain from considering each in light of the other. Comprising leading scholars in philosophy and literature, Of Levinas and Shakespeare: "To See Another Thus" is the first book-length work to treat both great thinkers. Lear, Hamlet, and Macbeth dominate the discussion; however, essays also address Cymbeline, The Merchant of Venice, and even poetry, such as Venus and Adonis. Volume editors planned and contributors deliver a thorough treatment from multiple perspectives, yet none intends this volume to be the last word on the subject; rather, they would have it be a provocation to further discussion, an enticement for richer enjoyment, and an invitation for deeper contemplation of Levinas and Shakespeare.

Did Robert de Shurland really kill his horse on the word of a local witch? Was that church in Gravesend really visited by aliens? If you ask the locals you will get ten different versions of the story.With Kent being the eldest county in England it's reasonable to expect a few famous names and events to have links here, yet Kent has an abundance of them.Names and events that when you hear them for the first time leaves you thinking “wow I didn't know that” Did you know about Kent's own “Bermuda Triangle”, what about the Kentish folk who saw battle at Trafalgar or at Rorkes Drift, or even the Titanic passenger from Sittingbourne?Throughout the generations these stories have been told and re-told thousands of times and with each telling the story grows and adapts a little bit more.The stories we have written in this book are the versions, which we have come to know and love. How historically accurate they are could be debated forever, although the basic facts of many of the stories are 100% accurate as our research has found. We leave you to decide, fact or fiction, myth or legend or a mixture of all four.So join us on a journey across history and through the towns and villages immortalised in Kentish folklore and see how many times you say...“Wow I didn't know that”
