A ride along the edge of reason... 30. Januar 2001
Von "villette" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
A truly original collection of surrealist fiction with a feminist twist. Carrington's stories are dense with occultist and cabalistic symbolism which may at first appear daunting, but which also contain a strong dose of black humour that never fails to be engaging. The language itself is both beautiful and strange, and many of these stories were originally written in French and Spanish, as well as the writer's native English.
Highlights include "As they rode along the edge", "My Mother is a Cow" and the novella "The Stone Door." This fascinating collection, from an often-overlooked writer, is an essential addition to the bookshelf of anyone with an interest in feminist or surrealist literature.

Surrealism & something even deeper 8. Februar 2013
Von William Timothy Lukeman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Leonora Carrington was the rare individual who excelled at more than one mode of creativity: while most famous as an exceptionally gifted Surrealist painter, she was an equally powerful & visionary writer. This collection of short stories & a novella is ample proof of that skill. Certainly her work as a Surrealist is a major influence on her writing ... but there's more at work here, both an almost primal, archetypal feminism & fascination with the occult, and a streak of very black humor indeed. Her work as a painter informs the often startling imagery of her stories, and her aristocratic background (along with her complete renunciation of it) shows in their sly & sometimes savage wit & intelligence. It's difficult to describe these stories, as they're not so much about plot or character as they're about their very style of telling. It's dreamlike, verging on the nightmarish, touched by the absurd, but always striking some very deep & potent emotions, something visceral & frighteningly responsive within the reader. For lack of a better category -- they really are sui generis -- they have the flavor of dark & twisted fairy tales, drawn from the forgotten history of some unknown culture that's all too much like our own, seen in a cracked carnival mirror. For those with a taste for spiky, disorienting, vivid visions, this collection is most highly recommended!

Unique Stories 25. April 2010
Von Richard H. Gutierrez - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Totally recommended for those who enjoy dreams, surrealism and find inspiration in these two reigns. Words fall short to describe the stories in this book. I have read the Spanish version and the language and descriptive narratives are beautiful. English has a different tone but this version wont fail to disappoint.

The Seventh Horse 4. August 2007
Von K. Zimmerman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I was looking forward to reading this after reading The Hearing Trumpet and admiring her work as a painter but found this one a little too out there and difficult to relate to.
