Bloody Chamber/Carter, Angela/Paper/0099588110/S025-B
"Angela Carter has extended the life and richness of the fable form itself partly through language that is both pellucid and sensual, but chiefly through imagination of such Ariel reach that she can glide from ancient to modern, from darkness to luminosity, from depravity to comedy without any hint of strain and without losing the elusive power of the original tales." - The Times.
"The Bloody Chamber's interweaving of retold fairy tales demonstrates Angel Carter's narrative gift at its most mocking and seductive." - Observer.
"She writes a prose that lends itself to magnificent set pieces of fastidious sensuality...dreams, myths, fairy tales, metamorphoses, the unruly unconscious, epic journeys and a highly sensual celebration of sexuality in both its most joyous and darkest manifestations." - Ian McEwan.
