Bloody Chamber Bluebeard & Postmodernism Intro Lesson
Set 'Bluebeard' as homework reading then do this lesson, which tests student's knowledge of the text and asks them to rewrite it in the style of Angela Carter. Post-modernism is then introduced (clear explanation provided) and students read and assess each others' rewritten stories for post-modernist traits. Finally, students consider quotations from critics and Carter herself examining the nature of revisionist fairy tales. There is a homework question on how far Carter is postmodern writer in the tales studied so far.

*Note - This lesson presupposes that students have read 'Bluebeard' but have not yet read 'The Bloody Chamber'. They should be familiar with Carter's style and should have read at least one of her other stories (I always start with 'The Werewolf').
