    Default Please check/critique my opening to an essay

    Hi there,

    Is this okay?

    Remind yourself of the story ‘Puss in Boots’ Explore how Angela Carter’s use of language makes the story entertaining and amusing for the reader
    Carter’s own take on the universally known fairy tale ‘Puss in Boots’ demonstrates her ability to subvert our expectations of traditional folktales and the characters depicted. In this story, Carter explores a folkloric, narcissistic speaking cat that helps a young man who has fallen in love. Unlike other stories in Carter’s collection, she adopts a much more light-hearted tone to make the story entertaining and amusing for the reader.

    You don't need "own" = Carter's take on

    fairytale - one word

    narcissistic, speaking

    Otherwise seems fine to me.
