Angela Carter /

Open All Close All

http://schema.org/description

  • "At the time of her death in 1992, Angela Carter had become an important and widely read British writer. However, as the author of a collection of essays entitled Nothing Sacred, she would probably have found her own canonization amusing. In the first book-length study devoted to her novels, Linden Peach demonstrates how Carter's fiction has retained the power to surprise and agitate. This lively book provides both close readings of individual texts and an overview of her work. Arguing that Carter often begins with our 'conclusions', it discusses the challenges that her novels mount to popular preconceptions and conventions."
  • ""This second edition reviews Carter's novels in the light of recent critical developments and offers entirely new perspectives on her work. There are now extended single chapters on Carter's most widely-studied novels, including The Passion of New Eve and Nights at the Circus, and discussion of the long essay "The Sadeian Woman.""--Provided by publisher."
  • "Linda Peach demonstrates how Carter's fiction has retained the power to shock us, move us and make us laugh. This lively book provides both close readings of individual texts and an overview of Carter's work."
