📝Margaret Atwood Book Synopsis : A prolific writer and versatile social critic, Canadian novelist and poet Margaret Atwood has recently published Bluebeard’s Egg (short stories), Interlunar (poetry), and The Handmaid’s Tale a critically acclaimed best-selling novel. This international collection of essays evaluates the complete body of her work—both the acclaimed fiction and the innovative poetry. The critics represented here—American, Australian, and Canadian—address Atwood’s handling of such themes as feminism, ecology, the gothic novel, and the political relationship between Canada and the United States. The essays on Atwood’s novels introduce the general reader to her development as a writer, as she matures from a basically subjective, poetic vision, seen in Surfacing and The Edible Woman, to an increasingly engaged, political stance, exemplified by The Handmaid’s Tale. Other essays examine Atwood’s poetry, from her transformation of the Homeric model to her criticisms of the United States’ relationship with Canada. The last two critical essays offer a unique view of Atwood through an investigation of her use of the concept of shamanism and through a presentation of eight of her vivid watercolors. The volume ends with Atwood presenting her own views in an interview with Jan Garden Castro and in a conversation between Atwood and students at the University of Tampa, Florida.

đź“ťMargaret Atwood Book Synopsis : Most writers tend to write the same book or poem over and over again, expanding its scope and refining its variants. Margaret Atwood, however, continues to re-invent herself as she re-invents her characters and her poetic personae with every new work. Each novel, each new poetry collection, signals a departure, a radical turn in an unexpected direction. Each becomes a daring journey that expands the reader's consciousness and defeats expectations. Atwood's writing has dealt with a multiplicity of urgent question -- from the destruction of the environment, the role of women in society and the spiritual alienation caused by consumerism, to the desensitising nature of mass culture, the loss of individual liberties, the responsibility of the writer and the limits of fiction -- all of which have been individually and in depth addressed in the present collection of essays. The contributors - Gayle Greene, Branko Gorjup, Coral Howells, Lorna Irvine, Stephanie Lovelady, Susan Jaret McKinstry, Jennifer Murray, Caterina Ricciardi, Barbara Hill Rigney, Roberta Rubenstein - come from several different countries, making this collection truly international in outlook. Thanks to their skilful guidance, the reader will marvel at the extent to which Atwood has internationalised Canada and has transformed it into an exciting real and imaginative world. He has taught Canadian Literature in universities in Canada and Italy.

đź“ťThe Door Book Synopsis : The Door, Margaret Atwood's first book of poetry since Morning in the Burned House, is a magnificent achievement. Here in paperback for the first time, these fifty lucid, urgent poems range in tone from lyric to ironic to mediative to prophetic, and in subject from the personal to the political, viewed in its broadest sense. They investigate the mysterious writing of poetry itself, as well as the passage of time and our shared sense of mortality. Brave and compassionate, The Door interrogates the certainties that we build our lives on, and reminds us once again of Margaret Atwood's unique accomplishments as one of the finest and most celebrated writers of our time.

đź“ťMargaret Atwood Book Synopsis : DIV Margaret Atwood enjoys a unique prominence in Canadian letters. With over thirty books to her credit, in genres ranging from children's writing to dystopic novels, she is as creatively diverse as she is internationally acclaimed. Her success, however, has been double-edged: the very popularity that makes her such a prominent figure in the literary world also renders her vulnerable to claims of being a "sell-out," as she relates in her Empson lectures. The Open Eye negotiates the space between these positions, acknowledging Atwood's remarkable achievement while considering how it impacts on national politics and identity. The range of perspectives in this volume is stimulating and enlightening. The Open Eye begins with a focus on Atwood as she presents herself and is presented in Canada and abroad, and then proceeds to consider, more broadly, the intersection of life and literature that Atwood's works and persona effect. It offers fresh insight into Atwood's early writing, redresses the critical void regarding her poetry and shorter prose pieces, and provides a critical base from which readers can assess Atwood's most recent novels. A common thread throughout these essays is the recognition of Atwood's importance in the literary realm in general, and in Canadian literature more particularly. /div
