This brief essay concerns the epistolary relationship between Jacques Barchilon and Angela Carter. She was a good translator of Charles Perrault as well as a most imaginative and witty/whimsical modern adaptor of the French storyteller’s texts. Her collection of stories, The Bloody Chamber, according to Barchilon, is probably Carter’s “master” book, with Salman Rushdie concurring in this opinion. A few quotations from Carter’s letters to Barchilon attest to her critical judgment as well as to her brave battle against the cancer that prematurely ended her life.
