Nights at the Circus.
The Woman in White, by Wilkie Collins. It can be a matter of editing as much as writing, to some extent. Nights at the Circus did not strike me as well written. This is a matter of some sloppiness — things that surely should have been pointed out in editing — but also of style.
Now, it is impossible to talk about Angela Carter for very long without talking about style. Hers was showy, verbose, lyrical, passionate. In this book, it struck me as excessively so. Perhaps it is a matter of length.
At any rate, for my taste, this book includes a few too many sentences like this: The toil-misshapen back of the baboushka humbly bowed before the bubbling urn in the impotently submissive obeisance of one who pleads for a respite or a mercy she knows in advance will not be forthcoming, and her hands, those worn, veiny hands that had involuntarily burnished the handles of the bellows over decades of use, those immemorial hands of hers slowly parted and came together again just as slowly, in a hypnotically reiterated gesture that was as if she were about to join her hands in prayer.
The writing consistently draws attention to itself, which is enough for some people to write it off as poorly written and for others to praise it as well written. I have no problem with intentionally heightened or lowered, or otherwise self-evident language; but it better be damned well done.
Another matter of style is dealing with person and tense; Carter can also be loose with this, and I am appreciative of it to an extent. It seemed capricious and unnecessary, in a book that has been rather free about letting us delve into minds and perspectives, nearly omnisciently, and has also been telling us back-stories and legends with some regularity.

Certainly the overabundance of her words and sentences was a central part of why the stories in The Bloody Chamber worked so well for me:This site does not store any files on its server. We only index and link to content provided by other sites.
