A prolific writer in many genres, Angela Carter is best known for her novels and short stories. Widely taught for their intelligence and complexity, Carter's works are equally enjoyed for their humor and vitality. Alison Lee has focused on Carter's novels in this incisive and accessible volume. Carter's writing, often deemed difficult, is examined and explained carefully and critically in a lucid, lively manner. Scenes from Carter's life as well as ideas from her nonfiction essays are woven into the analyses in order to represent the breadth of her voice and the acerbity of her wit. Angela Carter provides a text complete with chronology, notes and references, selected bibliography, and index.
