Angela Carter's writings have been a source of controversy since she was first published in the 1960s. Until her death in 1992 she wrote fantastical fictions and feminist political essays on sex, gender and class. This collection of literary critical studies provides a selection from the many different responses which her works have evoked. Together, they explore most of Carter's major writings and demonstrate a variety of feminist theoretical approaches.
