by Aidan Professor Day (Author). This is a very interesting book with a fairly broad appeal. For the demanding student, there are more useful books - this book does not aim to go into the works in such depth as more specialist texts, but this is mostly a virtue. One can read this without needing specialist knowledge of critical technique, which for me makes it priceless! Recommended.

Aidan Day describes theoretical arguments on the Enlightenment, modernity, feminism and postmodernism in a way which does not assume too much prior knowledge.

Broader in its appeal than previous work written on Carter, Aidan Day's clarity and thoroughness are refreshing in their recognition of Angela Carter's work.

Recommended by Booko.

Shadow Dance (1966), Heroes and Villains (1969), The Infernal Desire Machines of Doctor Hoffman (1972), Wise Children 1991, and other novels and story collections by feminist author Carter are critically examined. Treating the novels chronologically, the author argues that Carter's themes remained consistent throughout her work, although he points to transitions of treatment within her opus. The major themes he finds within her works are her opposition to philosophical postmodernism and her devotion to reason and empiricism as part of a metaphysical materialism.
