Something Wicked This Way Comes Pdf
Something Wicked This Way Comes is a 1962 dark fantasy novel by Ray Bradbury. It is about 13-year-old best friends, Jim Nightshade and William Halloway, and their nightmarish experience with a traveling carnival that comes to their Midwestern town one October, and how the boys learn about combatting fear. The carnival’s leader is the mysterious “Mr. Dark,” who seemingly wields the power to grant the citizenry’s secret desires. In reality, Dark is a malevolent being who, like the carnival, lives off the life force of those they enslave. Mr. Dark’s presence is countered by that of Will’s father, Charles Halloway, who harbors his own secret fear of growing older because he feels he is too old to be Will’s dad.
Something Wicked This Way Comes Summary
The novel opens on an overcast October 23. Two friends – William “Will” Halloway and Jim Nightshade – both on the verge of their fourteenth birthdays, encounter a strange lightning rod salesman, Tom Fury. He announces that a storm is coming their way. The salesman gives Jim a lightning rod because he tells the boys that one of their houses is in danger & they do not have money to buy one. Throughout the night, Will and Jim meet up with townsfolk who also sense something in the air: the barber says that it smells of cotton candy and licorice. Among the townspeople are Will’s 54-year-old father, Charles Holloway who works in the local library, and who broods philosophically about life and the past. Both Mr. Holloway and the boys learn about the carnival that is to start the next day.
