Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"A wonderfully written book, ironical, cerebral, elegant."
—Joyce Carol Oates, The New York Times Book Review

"She writes a prose that lends itself to magnificent set pieces of fastidious sensuality … dreams, myths, fairy tales, metamorphoses, the unruly unconscious, epic journeys, and a highly sensual celebration of sexuality in both its most joyous and darkest manifestations."
—Ian McEwan

"Carter not only switches her narrative into the wholly explicit but turns the passive predicament of the heroine into one in which the convention of female role-playing seems to have no part, only brisk and derisisve common sense, the best feminine tactic in a tight corner. The tales are retold by Angla Carter with all her supple and intoxicating bravura."
The New York Review of Books

"She was, among other things, a quirky, original, and baroque styleist, 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."
—Margaret Atwood, The Observer

Angela Carter propose une version subversive parce qu'explicite des contes de Perrault, mais en aucun cas dévoyée. L'écriture est magnifique, la crudité du langage, la violence qui en émane et l'univers de conté de fée avec qui plus est, la préconnaissance des contes en font une œuvre onirique puissante et magique. On en redemande !

SI vous aimé les contes froids et ambigus écrits dans une langues riche, baroque, vous serez servis.
Angela Carter réinvente les grands classiques du conte :le petit chaperon rouge, barbe-bleue, le chat botté, la belle et la bête...
et les contes n'ont pas été écrits pour les enfants!

J'ai aimé le premier conte "remanié" par Carter, mais au fil du recueil il m'a semblé que certaines des techniques étaient un peu répétitives, et à la longue la surprise s'émousse un peu. Si on prend les contes un par un il y a néanmoins des symboles intéressants. C'est un recueil divertissant qui propose un autre éclairage sur les contes de fée et une subversion intéressante des schémas traditionnels.

Déçue car je m'attendais à une réécriture subtile des contes et je les ai trouvés assez inégaux: je ne suis pas rentrée dans ce livre même si je l'ai terminé .

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Vivid, Bawdy and Fun! 8 octobre 2015
Par J. Jamakaya - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I like reading new takes on traditional fairy tales and this collection by Angela Carter was hair-raising and irreverently funny. Carter gives a modern twist to ten old tales like those of Bluebeard, Little Red Riding Hood and Beauty and the Beast. The stories are written in strong, vivid prose that brings them to life and makes them read like cliff-hangers. Carter’s writing has a bold, sexually suggestive edge that makes more explicit the sexual subtext of the originals. “The Bloody Chamber” is a pulse-racing revision of the Bluebeard legend, and “Puss in Boots” had me laughing out loud at the bravado of the randy old cat.

Some of my favorite women writers (Emma Donoghue and Sarah Waters, for instance) cite the English writer Angela Carter as a big influence on their writing. Ms. Carter passed away at age 51 in 1992. I’ve wanted to explore her writing and this short story collection was a great place to start. I look forward to reading some of her other stories and novels. Emma Donoghue, by the way, wrote her own feminist version of fairy tales called Kissing the Witch: Old Tales in New Skins. It has a very different tone than this book by Carter but anyone who likes this would probably enjoy reading Donoghue's book as well.

I first heard of Angela Carter when I was maybe 12 and saw the movie The Company of Wolves, I loved that movie so much and wanted to read the book but never found it, and as I grew up, I forgot about it... until I got Kindle and could basically read anything I wanted from around the world. Recently I remembered the book and it was best to have read it now as a grown up for I would have missed so much of the hidden references and the erotic atmosphere that surrounds these tales. Genius reinvention of folk tales and fairy tales, my favorite one is the Erl King. Carter shows us theses secret places of a woman psyche, the horror mixed with pleasure, the voices in the dark, and presents us with nonconformist heroines who take their destiny in their own hands, whether they fall from grace or walk out safe, it was entirely a choice of each one of them, a triumphant choice in every case. These folk tales we heard all of our lives, the pg rated version anyway, were always telling women to rely on beauty and virtue, to expect an impossible prince charming, to be rescued, be passive and submissive. Carter changes all those ideas which are imprinted in our minds even as grown up women, and changes the roles entirely; those who chose to become beasts and love savagely do on their own terms and in their own sweet time; those who choose darkness are redeemed and those who chose light do it to please no other than themselves. Besides all of that it was very entertaining to read, the exuberance of her words in some tales was very sensual and inviting.

I'm only giving it 5 stars because the messages conveyed and how well written it is. However, I'm not a fan of the material nearly as much as I wanted to be. I understand that feminist novelists need to emphasize characteristics that break away from androcentrism, but I can do without the heavy sexually explicit scenes of most stories in this book. It's just personal taste, not a judgment on quality. Angela Carter is amazing and has helped usher many minds in a positive direction. My support goes to the cause and her writing.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Beautiful Bloody Mess 24 décembre 2010
Par Oddsfish - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'll admit that I was a somewhat reluctant reader of The Bloody Chamber. I'd purchased it for a class and then ended up not needing to read it. I have a strange personal tradition, though, of reading one piece of horror fiction at Christmas time (a tradition that began in junior high when I happened to read J. Sheridan Le Fanu's Carmilla--a vampire tale that Carter references in The Bloody Chamber), and when this was what I had on the shelf come Christmas-time, I gave it a go.

I'll admit, too, that I was a little ambivalent about it when I began the first couple of stories. The stories tend to follow a pattern of opening with a long flood of elaborate, creepy descriptions before finally moving on to the story, and the language throughout the collection is not difficult, but is allusive, sometimes tortuous, and always ornate. It all, to be honest, felt overwritten.

But at the same time, after slogging through the opening of the first couple stories, I would reach the ending to find that the story opened up and culminated in something that was just startling. I won't give away any endings, but many of them, such as "The Werewolf" and "The Tiger's Bride," leave you with images that shock your intellect, and linger. And some of them, such as "The Bloody Chamber" and "The Courtship of Mr Lyon," end just beautifully. "The Bloody Chamber," especially, ends thrillingly, with the women of the story rejecting the passive roles typically assigned to them in fairy tales (this one based on Blue Beard) and washing the story in a beautiful bath of blood, in the process reshaping and reconstituting their community.

By the end of the book, Carter had totally won me over, and The Bloody Chamber's aspects that had seemed overwritten, instead, felt right. It felt like Carter had word-by-word constructed a concrete aesthetic world, an enormous gothic mansion complete with more than a few torture chambers and plenty of hidden passages still there to be explored. The Bloody Chamber was a fantastic book that I expect to enjoy even more on future readings.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful, chilling, brilliant 19 novembre 2013
Par Katie in BKLN - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book is beautiful and creepy, a fantastic blend of poetic language, humor, and bone-chilling horror. These retellings of classic fairy tales and other supernatural stories have a surprising and welcome female-friendly twist to them. The women here are set up like typical damsels in distress, but their solutions to their predicaments are by no means weak. It was fascinating to me that I would begin to feel a sense of dread for the characters, "knowing" (based on having read plenty of books and fairy tales in my day) that they were in for a sad ending, but Carter surprised me again and again by turning the typical patriarchal narrative on its head, and instead equipping her heroines with power, force of will, and strength that we rarely get to see in old-fashioned fairy stories. This is the kind of book you can read again and again, and always get something different out of it. Highly recommended.
