Great Literature Discussion: The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter, Stories 5-10 (Online)

May 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

From familiar fairy tales and legends Angela Carter created an absorbing collection of dark, sensual, fantastic stories. When she died in 1992 her reputation instantly went from cultish to canonical. Margaret Atwood said: “She was a quirky, original, and baroque stylist, a trait especially marked in The Bloody Chamber – her vocabulary a mix of finely tuned phrase, luscious adjective, witty aphorism, and hearty, up-theirs vulgarity.”

Literary works will be discussed based on what can be found in the text in order to enrich each other’s interpretation of the novel/novella. All are welcome to join and any edition or translation of the book under discussion can be used. Read the work in advance and be prepared to discuss the aspects of interest to you by referring to specific related text and reading it to the group. Moderated by Ethical NYC member Gunther Tielemans.

For access information, please contact Gunther.
