Angela Carter and the Gothic

Once more, something on Angela Carter. This is an excellent essay by Greg Buzwell on the interplay between Gothic and fairy tale in Carter’s The Bloody Chamber from the British Library’s Discovering Literature pages (a fabulous resource). Buzwell discusses such influences on Carter as Edgar Allen Poe, Charles Perrault, and the Marquis de Sade, and illustrates his essay with examples from the BL’s Carter archives.
