Angela Carter (1940-92) is widely known for her literary fairy tales, particularly those appearing in "The Bloody Chamber". Her stylishly creative appropriation and adaptation of fairy-tale patterns, motifs and content are evident not only in her individual tales written for adults but throughout her novels and other fiction. Editors Danielle M. Roemer and Cristina Bacchilega together with the contributors to this volume investigate Carter's approaches to the fairy-tale genre. They explore various facets of Carter's work and life and open new avenues for further research. The book is a collection of scholarly essays, fiction, personal reminiscence and interviews from an international group of scholars, artists and novelists.
