Quick Overview

of years and are found in some form or another in many cultures. With shape-shifting horror stories appearing from Asia to the Americas, Europe to Africa, werewolves can range from the enormous, savage, wolf-like animal in Wales that, at some point in the 1790s, was said to have overturned a stage coach, ripping into one of the horses and biting it to death under the light of a blood-red full moon; to the story of King Lycaeon in ancient Greek and Roman mythology who was turned into a wolf by the gods for serving them human flesh at a banquet. Wolves appear in children’s fairy stories as the symbol for a common and real evil – the wolf of Red Riding Hood is so human-like that he manages to fool the protagonist of the story by wearing her grandmother’s clothes. ‘Good werewolves’ also appear in legends from time to time for example the Lithuanian myth of the vilkacis – people whose souls move into that of a wolf’s and as long as they are left alone, will not cause any harm – leading many to believe that all humans have animal souls. Werewolves explores the myths and the legends of this fantastical creature and questions the many realities behind the fantasies.
