the bloody chamber

the earl king:
perfect transparency must be impenetrable  p.84
his eyes are quite green, as if from too much looking at the wood.  there are some eyes can eat you.

the lady of the house of love:
can a bird sing only the song it knows, or can it learn a new song?  p. 103
she herself is a haunted house.  she does not possess herself; her ancestors sometimes come and peer out of the windows of her eyes and that is very frightening. (see red book notes)
she turns her head away from the blue beams of his eyes; she knows no other consummation than the only one she can offer him.  she has not eaten for three days.
the bridegroom bleeds on my inverted marriage bed.  how can she bear the pain of becoming human?

i had the coolest copy of carter’s book ever n i hope my friend i gave it to read any of it at all.
