Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Door, Margaret Atwoods first book of poetry since her award-winning Morning in the Burned House, is a magnificent achievement. These fifty lucid, urgent poems range in tone from lyric to ironic to meditative 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 Atwoods unique accomplishments as one of the finest and most celebrated writers of our time.

Synopsis:

Atwoods first book of poetry since "Morning in the Burned House" in 1995, "The Door" contains 50 lucid yet urgent poems which range in tone from lyric to ironic and meditative to prophetic, and in subject from the personal to the political.
