Halloween re read Angela Carter is an absolute masterful writer She takes the basic narrative of fairy tales and infuses them will blood death and horror She s a genius at what she doesShe s a great story teller She transports the stories to the confines of modern society and considers real issues such as the representation of women the limitations of gender and the restrictions of stories themselvesHer prose is captivating near on enchanting As soon as I began reading the first story in here I was hooked on her style She reminds me of Margaret Attwood The two have a way of presenting such issues in a remarkably frank way and better yet the stories themselves the actual plot rather than the allegories are immensely entertaining This is the kind of literature I love a suspense filled vessel of storytelling that is full of dark meanings She s a drastically under read writer when you consider her creative talent I couldn t recommend her work highly especially today

Free read Õ The Bloody Chamber Other Stories Airy tales and legends Little Red Riding Hood Bluebeard Puss in Boots Beauty and the Beast vampires. An extraordinarily sensual symbol rich collection of very adult tales of enchantment focusing on female protagonists Some are dirtier versions of the familiar some are barely recognisable beyond title and names and a couple were unknown to me The Lyon and Tiger stories are variants of each other and it ends with three relating to wolves two of which are versions of Little Red Riding HoodThere is blood in the title and there are many allusions to literal and metaphorical blood mainly in relation to sacrificial virgins puberty menstruation sex and flowers sometimes both as a deflowered bride ponders The lilies I always associate with him that are white And stain you Power and betrayal are also major themes aided by the delusion of disguise different skins and shedding thereof and hence loss of inhibitions and innocence Love often euates to death of some kind It s a feast for all the senses though it doesn t always leave a pleasant taste However Carter is a feminist at heart and this is reflected in many of the tales having female narrators along with the way she twists and subverts the reader s expectationsThe Bloody ChamberThe longest story is that of Bluebeard which was a partial inspiration for Jane Eyre see my review HERE but here is set in modernish times A much married man takes a new young innocent wife She leaves her mother and goes Into marriage into exile despite some sinister signs dead or missing wives yet his waxen face was not lined by experience her mother s concerns and her own euivocation when asked if she loves him she says I m sure I want to marry him Her father had died leaving a legacy of tears that never uite dried and she is seduced by an opal ring that may be cursed I sensed in myself a potentiality for corruption and evidently he does too The bedroom scene is disturbing but not in a graphic way as is his porn collection which features disturbingly youthful subjects He wants to flood the bedroom with light all the better to see you echoing two versions of Little Red Riding Hood later in the bookHe goes away leaving her in charge of the household including all the keys She is instructed to indulge herself as she likes in this lovely prison of which I was both the inmate and the mistress with a single exception she must never enter the room where he occasionally goes to savour the rare pleasure of imagining myself wifeless Of course the temptation is enormous view spoilershe looks finds the bodies of previous wives surrounded by lilies and then can t wash the incriminating blood off the key I had been tricked into my own betrayal His face contained a sombre delirium guilty joy as he slowly ascertained how I had sinned hide spoiler
