What’s it all about?
Angela Carter’s works made her an acclaimed novelist, short story writer and journalist. Her subversive magic realism challenges binary representations of women that are typical within children’s fairy tales.

Carter penned the controversial and fascinating short stories in The Bloody Chamber. This collection will serve as the basis for this introduction to the life and works of this fantastic female writer.

“Carter’s work deals with how the abuses of women are represented within a phallocentric society, how they are created to be ‘the other’ and become empowered by acts of violence and their own sexuality as a means of self identification.” - Gamble 2001: 111

- Explore the history of Carter’s life and works.
- Become better acquainted with several of her texts.
