Angela Carter's 'Provincial Bohemia': The Counterculture in 1960s and 1970s Bristol and Bath


Manufacturer: Bristol Radical History Group

Product Information

"Socialist and feminist novelist Angela Carter is one of the most acclaimed late-twentieth-century English writers, famous for short-story collections such as The Bloody Chamber and novels including Nights at the Circus and Wise Children.

Angela Carter’s ‘Provincial Bohemia’ takes Carter’s life and work in Bristol (1961-1969) and Bath (1973-1976) as a starting point to explore the artistic, radical and experimental communities that flourished at that time. Newly recorded interviews and other primary sources reveal the experiences that may have shaped Carter’s outlook during her formative years as a writer.

Along the way, Stephen E. Hunt looks at the character and impact of the West Country’s counterculture: a journey that takes us through the folk and rock scene, CND and the Vietnam war, the 1968 student occupations, radical media, the women’s liberation movement, the Bath Arts Workshop, performance art, community technology and more.

There are even a couple of Angela Carter jokes…"

Written by Stephen E Hunt, published by Bristol Radical History Group (BRHG), 2020.
