    MOBI Angela Carter Ë Ë Bluebeard PDF ✓ bluebeard book, Bluebeard ePUBA funny little book and it is very little 64 pages each about half the size of a normal paperback page It's not bad but far far better is her feast of bloodier darker tales The Bloody Chamber which I reviewed hereAngela Carter retells seven of Charles Perrault's classic fairytales though two I'd never heard of In fact the telling is mostly traditional b

    MOBI Angela Carter Ë Ë Bluebeard PDF ✓ bluebeard book, Bluebeard ePUBThese short stories headlined by Bluebeard are retelling of classic fairy tales In this short Penguin compendium there are five of them all have the Carter trademark dry humour and a message which she clearly lays out as “Moral” at the end of each one Good if not brief entertainment

    MOBI Angela Carter Ë Ë Bluebeard PDF ✓ bluebeard book, Bluebeard ePUBAngela Carter reinterprets these classic fairytales with skilful brevity elegance of language and sharpness of wit that stays true to Perrault’s narrative style and structure and doesn’t stray as far from the original versions as might be expectedBut be warned if you read Bluebeard hoping for of The Bloody Chamber it may feel a little like having to drink a beaker of cheap house red after enjoying a goblet of full b

    MOBI Angela Carter Ë Ë Bluebeard PDF ✓ bluebeard book, Bluebeard ePUBI was very much looking forward to reading a small collection of Angela Carter's dark fairy tales and while it's an excellent collection of stories told with pace and precision I was disappointed to realise the stories are in essence faithful translations of Perrault's talesSo while the stories provide simple and unadulterated fun that they're Perrault than Angela Carter makes the book's attribution to Carter something of a mockery Shame on Penguin for the immorality of their marketing department

    MOBI Angela Carter Ë Ë Bluebeard PDF ✓ bluebeard book, Bluebeard ePUBNot what is on the tin as it wereThe book itself would be a pleasant 6510 as it is solely a translation with a bit of a half joke thrown in at the end However it is not sold as such It is sold saying it is a subversive retelling which is a lieThis work makes me think of a line from the Simpsons Get some new oldies Geniuses this book is just that When you are a company that makes your money off of classics your market is not going to be the greatest so create some new masterpieces and then spin a tale on the back cover to get the audience to purchase it

    MOBI Angela Carter Ë Ë Bluebeard PDF ✓ bluebeard book, Bluebeard ePUBI picked this little book up excited to finally discover Angela Carter's writing – but Bluebeard behind its promising title is just a collection of Charles Perrault's original fairy tales translated from French to English with a handful of updated morals thrown in The large print name on the cover should be Charles Perrault
