The Cambridge Introduction to Margaret Atwood, Hardback Book

The Cambridge Introduction to Margaret Atwood Hardback

Part of the Cambridge Introductions to Literature series


Margaret Atwood offers an immensely influential voice in contemporary literature.

Her novels have been translated into over 22 languages and are widely studied, taught and enjoyed.

Her style is defined by her comic wit and willingness to experiment.

Her work has ranged across several genres, from poetry to literary and cultural criticism, novels, short stories and art.

This Introduction summarizes Atwood's canon, from her earliest poetry and her first novel, The Edible Woman, through The Handmaid's Tale to The Year of the Flood.

Covering the full range of her work, it guides students through multiple readings of her oeuvre.

It features chapters on her life and career, her literary, Canadian and feminist contexts, and how her work has been received and debated over the course of her career.

With a guide to further reading and a clear, well organised structure, this book presents an engaging overview for students and readers.
