This paper undertakes a critical analysis of Angela Carter’s The Passion of New Eve (1977). It focuses on the textual representations of sexed experience and connects this with the narrative form of the novel. Carter’s novel produces a textuality of experience in articulation with sexual and subjective transformation. Teresa de Lauretis’s concept of experience provides ways into an understanding of the transformations that take place in Carter’s novel. I also use de Lauretis’s concept of a critical “elsewhere” to inform the question of experience as it emerges in Carter’s text. I suggest that experience is creative and destructive, shaping the layered perspectives of the narrative. Carter writes towards the possibility of other sorts of relations and difference?sexual, perspectival, and subjective?and she takes the reader along to experience an opening of conclusions.


Key Words: Angela Carter, The Passion of New Eve, experience, narrative, sex, gender, transformation
