    Elements of Magical Realism and Fantasy in The Donkey Prince "The Donkey Prince" is a short story written by Angela Carter in 1970. Carter is an English novelist.

    animated classics of our childhood? It is truly hard to believe that sometimes there are much more racy versions of these same tales. Today, I ‘d like to share one such variation of Little Red Riding Hood called In the Company of Wolves, written by Angela Carter.
