Abstract:

"Angela Carter's writings have been a source of pleasure, puzzlement and controversy ever since she started publishing in the 1960s. Until her death in 1992, she was one of Britain's most exciting contemporary authors, particularly with her fantastical fictions and her feminist political essays on sex, gender and class. Carter identified herself as a feminist and most of her writings explore the subject of gender, usually in difficult and daring ways." "This collection of literary critical studies provides a selection from the many different responses which her works have evoked over the past twenty years. Together they explore most of Carter's major writings and demonstrate a variety of feminist theoretical approaches."--Jacket.
