Nights at the Circus, Angela Carter

nights at the Circus, Angela Carter

Lizzie, who has been with her since the beginning, ever bat an eyelid over the veracity of any of her claims, so Walser sits in stunned silence as he hears about all of the inmates of the brothel where Fevvers grew. Its about the extravagant and celebratory atmosphere, about the fascinating cast of characters, all of them misfits with a story to tell, about Angela Carters lush language. Nights at the Circus is a dizzying and magical journey, and I cant believe it took me this long to pick. Authentic, fearfully symmetric tigers burning as brightly as those who had been lost.

Its a rollercoaster romp across Europe, where nobody is necessarily nice but equally goodness can be found in unusual places. . The tone, or the several different tones, the rhythm, the tricks she pulls: all of them celebrate language, and they do so in a way that is luxuriant but never excessive. Courted by the Prince of Wales, painted by Toulouse-Lautrec and star of Captain Kearneys celebrated circus, she is a renowned aerialiste. . The engine wailed softly, the locking wheels clicked and groaned but nothing in sight, not even one of those frilly little wooden stations like gingerbread houses they put up in these parts, mocking the wilderness with their suggestion of the fairy tale. I realised that I needed to read. Im going on and on about her use of language this is because I hadnt read Carter in a while, and Id forgotten just how much I love. Her language is beautiful, rich, and playful. It seems that people have argued back and forth over whether this is a post-feminist or a feminist novel for years ultimately though, I think we can agree that it is pro-women. Carter has described the book as like a psychedelic Dickens and indeed one can see the parallels in terms of setting and similar cast of colourful characters, but. We are in the middle of nowhere.
