Sir Christopher Frayling and Angela Carter’s The Bloody Chamber

Sir Christopher Frayling has applied his immense erudition to many areas of popular culture but will be best known here, perhaps, for his pioneering study, Vampyres: Lord Byron to Count Dracula (1978), which made academic research into vampire fiction respectable. A close friend of the brilliant Angela Carter, he discusses here her rich revisions of classic fairy tales in the collection The Bloody Chamber (1979). Among these are tales of vampires and werewolves, most notably ‘The Company of Wolves’, which gives its title to OGOM’s forthcoming conference.
