Reading Angela Carter’s three consecutive versions of “Little Red Riding Hood” (the three wolf stories at the end of The Bloody Chamber) together with feminist interpretations of Lacanian psychoanalytic theory suggests the possibility of a radically different erotics based on a range of categorical slippages and unexpected characterizations of feminine sexuality. This other erotics simultaneously contests both the oppressive sexual ideologies at the heart of many of the classic Western fairy tales as well as the more recent attempts by women to rewrite fairy tales in an erotic vein.
