‘Invisible music — Angela Carter and the folksong revival’

During my presentation I will play a short extract from a recording of Carter singing in a folk club in 1967, and then by playing other folksongs she knew side-by-side with readings from her texts, I hope to show how far she was influenced by the folksong form, and posit some suggestions as to how these correlations might alter or enhance our understanding of her oeuvre.
