Hi. I was wondering if anyone could help me?
One of the pieces for my A2 English coursework is to write a short story on Entrapment, in the style of Angela Carter (for anyone that hasn't read Angela Carter her stories are quite pretty gruesome and sexual) basing it loosely on a fairytale.
I decided to do mental entrapment of a marriage maybe using Hansel and Gretel as the fairytale. I was hoping someone could expand on that idea for me. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hey, I would love to help you out. I haven't read any Angela Carter books but I should hopefully still be able to help you come up with a general plot . I understand you would like this to be based on the Hansel and Gretel fairy tale but I'm not too sure what you mean by 'mental entrapment of a marriage.' Do you mean someone feels trapped in their marriage or somebody falls into the trap of becoming married (hahaha) or something else entirely?

hi there,
i would love to be doing this essay myself.

i would look at Margeret Atwood's short story called 'Bluebeard's Egg' which is about this theme.
The Piano' which has a play within the main story of the 'Bluebeard' theme. Excellent material for the basis of your essay and of course Angela Carter's 'The Toyshop'.

Good luck,
Jacqueline Ava Stubbings
