GROTESQUE BODIES AND SPACES IN ANGELA CARTER’S THE PASSION OF NEW EVE

PAPATYA ALKAN GENCA [1]

40 63

Angela Carter’s widely-acclaimed novel The Passion of New Eve is a dystopian text in which a bleak, rotten, and destructive setting provides the backdrop for the problematization of such issues as gender and politics, and the collapse of binaries. It is significant to focus on the novel’s dismantling of binaries, especially in terms of the problematized distinction between human and non-human, biological body and machine, inside and outside, man-made and natural. Such dismantling is especially manifest in the physical characterization of Eve/lyn, the Mother, Zero, and Tristessa. All of these characters are presented as forms of excess. Moreover, the spaces they inhabit reinforce and perpetuate their excessiveness as well as grotesque depictions. In this respect, this paper argues that grotesque bodies embedded within grotesque landscapes in The Passion of New Eve makes it possible to have an ecological discussion of the relationship between the body and the environment.
