Black ​Venus 2 csillagozás

Angela Carter: Black Venus Angela Carter: Black Venus

A collection of short stories: 'BLACK VENUS' displays the superbly witchy Angela Carter at her best. Her fabulous fables all speak for themselves in tones so commanding you feel this must be Baudelaire's mistress, ageing, remembering, still spreading syphilis, or Lizzie Borden restless in the fatal and hot Massachusetts summer. Whatever her subject Miss Carter writes like a dream – sometimes a nightmare. And as the voices call out, the images blaze, one is saved from an excess of fantasy by earthy realism, a sudden bark of humour' .

She was like a piano in a country where everyone had their hands cut off.

Black Venus


The moist, sullen, Southern winter signed her quietus. She put on Ophelia’s madwoman’s nightgown for her farewell.
When she summoned him, the spectral horseman came. Edgar looked out the window and saw him. The soundless hooves of black-plumed horses struck sparks from the stones in the road outside. “Father!” said Edgar; he though their father must have reconstituted himself at this last extremity in order to transport them all to a better place but, when he looked more closely, by the light of a gibbous moon, he saw the sockets of the coachman’s eyes were full of worms.
