She was once born throughout the Jazz Age and grew up in Paris and the yank Midwest after her father’s loss of life at the polo box and her mother’s later suicide. As a tender warfare reporter, she waded ashore on Omaha seashore and witnessed the liberation of Dachau. She spent the Fifties hobnobbing in Hollywood with Marlene Dietrich and Gene Kelly. She went to West Africa as an Ambassador’s spouse because the New Frontier dawned. She comforted a distraught Lyndon Baines Johnson in Washington, D.C., because the Vietnam battle became a quagmire. And this present day? this present day, it’s June 6, 2006: Pamela Buchanan Murphy Gerson Cadwaller’s eighty-sixth birthday. With a few asperity, she’s looking ahead to a congratulatory mobilephone name from the President of the U.S.. Brother, is he ever going to get a section of her brain.

Sample text

It shares certain themes (the murderous and rich man, Eight Elements of Intertextual Use of Fairytales 31 the secret room, the isolated location) but in other ways it lacks some features that have been seen as the definitive (such as the prohibition to enter the secret room, the previously murdered wives, the bloody key as sign of disobedience). Casie Hermansson gets around this problem by reducing Bluebeard to two key elements, the murderous male and the secret chamber, much like a folklorist identifying the motifs that they consider to be most important to a tale (Hermansson 2003).

In condensation one sign collects into itself a host of meanings or signifiers; in displacement a sign from another area of signification stands in for the real content of the dream. A ring in a dream might symbolically condense ideas and desires concerning a host of aspects of life: marriage, religious faith, 34 The Postmodern Fairytale sexual desire, economic stability or instability. A surreal dream centring on a cake might be a symbolically displaced working-through of the dreamer’s desires for a person associated in the unconscious with cakes.

For example, in A. S. Byatt’s Babel Tower the character Nigel is aristocratic, rich, violent, misogynistic and owns a house that is (like a castle) surrounded by a moat, a list of qualities highly reminiscent of the fairytale ogre. These ‘Bluebeard’-like qualities correspond with resemblances between the plot of ‘Bluebeard’ and Babel Tower, in which the protagonist, Frederica, uses a ‘sharp toothed’ little key to open a suitcase in one of her husband Nigel’s ‘secret places’. She discovers not human remains, as in the fairytale, but a stash of sadomasochistic pornography which is presented in the same way: ‘It is like finding trunks of butchered limbs, she tells herself wildly, hands and feet under the floorboards’ (Byatt 1997a: 101).
