dc.description.abstractThis thesis is an analysis of hybrid or transformative bodies in Angela Carter's The Bloody Chamber and The Sadeian Woman which examines her development of animalistic characteristics as a means to challenge the boundaries of sex and gender. Through the use of animalistic characteristics and violent sexuality Carter challenges readers to question whether gender is an essential or performative state. Examples from Carter's texts will demonstrate how her characters resist Western patriarchal tropes surrounding sex and gender, in order to reconsider how power functions between the sexes.
