The result is an emotive and provocative novel, which has attracted much critical attention from a range of perspectives including poststructuralism, gender studies, postmodernism and psychoanalysis.

This guide to Angela Carter's complex novel, presents:

  • an accessible introduction to the text and contexts of Nights at the Circus
