Angela Carter’s  The Bloody Chamber 20:31 Angela Carter Associated with the movements of postmodernism, feminism, magical realism, the gothic and the baroque Our focus: postmodern style and its alliance with feminist social critique. The continuous/redirection of the modernist project—experimentation, the liberation from a burdensome tradition—here seen in her reworking of the most traditional of genres, the folk tale. The collaboration of aesthetic experimentation and a critique of social morality/value systems. Her use of parody, pastiche, the gothic, and the profane. Postmodernism/post modernity The diversity of the POSTMODERN—be careful how you use the term! The legacy of aesthetic experimentation and the cult of the new Literary/aesthetic movement (after modernism) A state of western society (the “attitude” of modernity) Think about how we refer to literary periods ROMATIC (aesthetic) VICTORIAN (a queen) MODERNISM (a shitorical attitude of “now”) POSTMODERNISM (after NOW??) The paradox of POSTMODERNISM: the now after the now!
