Reading for Metaphor Using Angela Carter
Crachiolo, Elizabeth
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v37 n2 p189-192 Dec 2009

This article establishes reasons for teaching metaphorical thinking and then goes on to argue that Angela Carter's short fiction is uniquely suited for such an endeavor. (Contains 1 note.)
