The Fiction of Angela Carter, Paperback Book

The Fiction of Angela Carter Paperback

Edited by Sarah Gamble

Part of the Readers' Guides to Essential Criticism series


In this Readers' Guide, Sarah Gamble, herself a leading interpreter of Carter's work, examines the critical reception of her writing, including the much-debated non-fiction text,The Sadeian Woman.

Drawing on interviews, articles, books and Carter's own assessments of her role as writer, it focuses on the controversy surrounding Carter's portrayals of sadistic eroticism; her adaptation of the Gothic, science-fiction and fairy-tale genres; her subversion of gender identity; and the extent to which she was influenced by postmodern theory.
