As the story begins the reader becomes engulfed in a description of woods that immediately is portrayed as a place that will trap this woman in it. “These vertical bars of a brass-colored distillation of light. ..” gives the feeling of a jail or place of imprisonment. These woods are unwelcoming and desolate that have no tracks of humans in them which wards people away and frightens them. However these woods are not like fairy tales, as Carter uses a direct reference to the famous story of Little Red Riding Hood, but rather we get lost in our own illusions and the woods are exactly as it seems. The woman knew that as soon as she entered she was trapped by a mysterious force. As the reader one can depict that the narrator wants to be caught and drawn in.
