Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

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.

About the Author

MARGARET ATWOOD'S poetry, like her fiction — including The Handmaids Tale and the Booker-winning The Blind Assassin — is known and acclaimed around the world. Her last collection, Morning in the Burned House, won the Trillium Book Award in 1995. The author of more than forty works of fiction, poetry, critical essays, and books for children, Atwood has received top honors and awards in Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom, and many other countries. She lives in Toronto. In 2008, Atwood was awarded the prestigious Prince of Asturias Award Laureate for Letters, considered to be the Spanish-language Nobel.
