‘A young girl would go into the wood as trustingly as Red Riding Hood to her granny’s house but this light admits of no ambiguities and, here, she will be trapped in her own illusion because everything in the wood is exactly as it seems.
The woods enclose and then enclose again, -‘
Angela Carter ‘The Erl-King’ from The Bloody Chamber (1979)
