In Eighteenth Century France, Charles Perrault Rescued From The Oral
Tradition Fairy Tales That Are Known And Loved Even Today By Virtually All
Children In The West. Angela Carter Came Across Perrault'S Work And Set Out
To Adapt The Stories For Modern Readers Of English. In Breathing New Life
Into These Classic Fables, She Produced Versions That Live On As Classics
In Their Own Right, Marked As Much By Her Signature Wit, Irony, And
Subversiveness As They Are By The Qualities That Have Made Them Universally
Appealing For Centuries.
