From the Publisher:
'Placing the work of an author like Angela Carter who consistently plays around with the notion of the writing self and whose own autobiographical essays and statements are not to be entirely trusted within its biographical and cultural contexts is a demanding project. In Angela Carter: A Literary Life, Sarah Gamble rises to the challenge, demonstrating convincingly that Carter's portrayal of the self as provisional and contingent does not mean that we cannot make connections between her art and her life. Gamble's emphasis upon Carter as an astute observer of the societies in which she lived and worked is a refreshing perspective on a writer more commonly associated with fantasy than political comment.' - Professor Linden Peach, University of Gloucestershire, UK
'Angela Carter: A Literary Life offers insight for appreciating Carter's style, but more importantly it demonstrates Carter's relationship to the social and historical contexts within which she wrote. As part of Palgrave's Literary Lives series, Gamble's book establishes these contexts through careful reasoning and thorough research... Gamble's method provides a thoughtful and coherent reading of Carter's major works.' - Carolyn Perry, Literature& History, 2008
Angela Carter's life was an eventful and vagrant one, including travels to Japan, Russia, America and Australia, and early success in the sixties that did not last into the seventies. But by the time of her tragically early death in 1992, Carter had become recognised as one of the most successful and original British literary figures of the twentieth century and she has subsequently become one of the most studied authors in British universities. This book disentangles the cult of Angela Carter as 'the fairy godmother of magical realism' from her own claims to be a materialist and 'demythologiser' by placing her within the social, political and cultural context within which she worked. Drawing on Carter's own autobiographical articles, as well as her fiction, journalism, radio plays and TV programmes, this study examines Carter's engagement with national (particularly English) identity, class, politics and feminism, assessing the relationship between her life, her times and her art.
