"I present here a diabolically fascinating compilation of Devil lore and literature, which I have illustrated with images both spooky and seductive - and amusingly human." "I have inspired many of the greatest artists, including William Blake, Gustave Dore, Duccio, Giotto and Michelangelo. My sway over folk and popular artists continues to this day. I am also captured here with startling vitality in inventive vignettes by authors including Charles Baudelaire, Ambrose Bierce, Mikhail Bulgakov, Anatole France, John Milton, Vladimir Nabokov, Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Louis Stevenson, William Thackeray and Mark Twain. See for yourself the fruits of my inspiration."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved… (more)
