Angela Carter January 25, 2019

This crazy world whirled around her, men and women dwarfed by toys and puppets, where even the birds are mechanical and the few human figures went maskedShe was in the night once again, and the doll was herself Melanie walks in the midnight garden, wearing her mother s wedding dress naked she climbs the apple tree in the black of the moon Omens of disaster, swiftlyThis crazy world whirled around her, men and women dwarfed by toys and puppets, where even the birds are mechanical and the few human figures went maskedShe was in the night once again, and the doll was herself Melanie walks in the midnight garden, wearing her mother s wedding dress naked she climbs the apple tree in the black of the moon Omens of disaster, swiftly following, transport Melanie from rural comfort to London, to the Magic Toyshop To the red haired, dancing Finn, the gentle Francie, dumb Aunt Margaret and Uncle Phillip Francie plays curious night music, Finn kisses fifteen year old Melanie in the mysterious ruins of the pleasure gardens Brooding over all is Uncle Philip Uncle Philip, with blank eyes the colour of wet newspaper, making puppets the size of men, and clockwork roses He loves his magic puppets, but hates the love of man for woman, boy for girl, brother for sister.
