Abstract

Angela Carter's various revisions of "Little Red Riding Hood" laid open the violent, alluring, and often distressing reality of adult sexuality. Although the relationship between Carter's stories and the earlier tale has been analyzed, relatively little attention has been paid to the figure of Lewis Carroll's Alice in her work on "Little Red Riding Hood." Here it is argued that Alice is an important figure in and that Carroll's work is a vital intertext to Carter's short story "Wolf-Alice" and the film Company of Wolves.
