angela carter

I found two incredible articles about Angela Carter's magic novel 'Nights at the circus'. These are thorough analyses that privilege theoretical approaches (e.g. feminism)--very interesting! A scene that isn't quoted in them is the explosion of the train, traveling through the Russian snow, when everything is suspended for some seconds and the elephants end up wandering in the snow with debris ablaze... Superior to G Marquez, even.
