Women Behaving Badly: Dahl's Witches Meet the Women of the Eighties.
Bird, Anne-Marie
Children's Literature in Education, v29 n3 p119-29 Sep 1998
Investigates the issue of misogyny in Roald Dahl's 1983 book and Nicolas Roeg's 1989 film, "The Witches." Looks at the general differences in the two texts--the most explicit difference is in the film's ending. Explores the significance of the witch in the book and to what extent Roeg's film uses the implied connection between evil and gender. (PA)
