Critical reception

The Bloody Chamber has received heavy praise and attention from numerous critics such as Jack Zipes (who called it a "remarkable collection"[10]) and Marina Warner (who, on its inspirational nature, said it "turned the key for [her] as a writer"[11]).

Several critical works have been published that focus on Carter's use of fairy tales in The Bloody Chamber and her other works[12] and the anthology is also frequently taught and studied in University literature courses.[13]

It has been used as part of the AQA English Literature and Edexcel English Language/Literature syllabus for A-Levels in some schools in the United Kingdom.
