Release Date: 2015-08-20
Genre: Literary Criticism

I would really like to have had the guts and the energy and so on to be able to write about people having battles with DHSS. But I haven't ... I'm an arty person. Okay, I write overblown, purple, self-indulgent prose. So what... Alienated is the only way to be, after all. Since 1990, Angela Carter’s reputation, as writer and thinker, has soared, to the point where her collection of folk and fairy tales for the modern age, The Bloody Chamber, is now a GCSE set text in England, and is taught on most university-level literature courses. There are MA programmes entirely devoted to her writings. Her complete works have been printed and reprinted over the last quarter-century, and films, The Company of Wolves, The Magic Toyshop; and plays, such as Nights at the Circus (Kneehigh), have been derived from them. Her influence on ‘the contemporary Gothic’ is both wide-ranging and profound.

Macbeth

Author: Alasdair D. F. Macrae
Publisher: Pearson Education
ISBN: 1447913140
Release Date: 2012
Genre: A-level examinations

From Thomas Jefferson to John Rawls, justice has been at the center of America's self-image and national creed. At the same time, for many of its peoples-from African slaves and European immigrants to women and the poor-the American experience has been defined by injustice: oppression, disenfranchisement, violence, and prejudice. In Identity and the Failure of America, "John Michael explores the contradictions between a mythic national identity promising justice to all and the realities of a divided, hierarchical, and frequently iniquitous history and social order. Through a series of insightful readings, Michael analyzes such cultural moments as the epic dramatization of the tension between individual ambition and communal complicity in Moby-Dick, "attempts to effect social change through sympathy in the novels of Lydia Marie Child and Harriet Beecher Stowe, Ralph Waldo Emerson's antislavery activism and Frederick Douglass's long fight for racial equity, and the divisive figures of John Brown and Nat Turner in American letters and memory. Focusing on exemplary instances when the nature of the United States as an essentially conflicted nation turned to force, Michael ultimately posits the development of a more cosmopolitan American identity, one that is more fully and justly imagined in response to the nation's ethical failings at home and abroad. John Michael is professor of English and of visual and cultural studies at the University of Rochester. He is the author of Anxious Intellects: Academic Professionals, Public Intellectuals, and Enlightenment Values and Emerson "and Skepticism: The Cipher of the World."

This stunning collection contains lyrical tales, bloody tales and hilariously funny and ripely bawdy stories from countries all around the world- from the Arctic to Asia - and no dippy princesses or soppy fairies. Instead, we have pretty maids and old crones; crafty women and bad girls; enchantresses and midwives; rascal aunts and odd sisters. This fabulous celebration of strong minds, low cunning, black arts and dirty tricks could only have been collected by the unique and much-missed Angela Carter. Illustrated throughout with original woodcuts.

Dracula

Author: Glennis Byron
Publisher: Macmillan
ISBN: 0312218281
Release Date: 1999-02-15
Genre: Literary Criticism

The popular appeal of Bram Stoker's Count Dracula, now over a hundred years old, shows little sign of waning. No other monster has endured and proliferated in quite the same way--even if we now seem to prefer interviewing, rather than staking, our vampires. It is only over the last twenty years, however, that Dracula has begun to receive much serious critical attention. The essays in this book represent the most significant contemporary work on the novel from a wide variety of theoretical perspectives, including Marxist, psychoanalytical, historicist, and feminist, forming a unique collection which engages questions about the psychological and social significance of this highly transgressive and enduringly popular text.
