Description

This work explores contemporary women's rewritings of myth and fairy tale. It examines the nature and role of myth, rewriting existing theories in an attempt to explain the ongoing potency of mythical paradigms in contemporary women's fiction despite the distorted images of gender they frequently present. To illustrate this, the book offers a series of readings of texts by a range of contemporary women writers whose fictions draw on, interrogate, or rework mythic models, including A.S. Byatt, Michele Roberts and Angela Carter.
