“Angela Carter made an inspired, marvelous move, for which so many other writers as well as readers will always be indebted to her: she refused to join in rejecting or denouncing fairy tales, but instead embraced the whole stigmatized genre, its stock characters and well-known plots, and with wonderful verve and invention, perverse grace and wicked fun, soaked them in a new fiery liquor that brought them leaping back to life.”Read more of Marina Warner on Angela Carter and fairy tales here.

    Angela Carter is a bad ass and if you’ve never read her work, you totally should.
