Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Recognized as a feminist author, and the greatest living Canadian writer engaged with issues of gendered and national identity, Margaret Atwood also problematises both of these labels and trends in her work. This Guide will cover Atwood's entire fictional oeuvre and will engage fully with each of the debates developed by the various key critics of her work, interweaving these with sustained critical commentary and guiding readers through the key critical issues and approaches to reading Atwood's fiction. Including detailed coverage of Atwood's most widely-studied novels - The Handmaid's Tale, Alias Grace and The Blind Assassin - Gina Wisker provides both an original contribution and an essential guide to criticism on the work of this internationally renowned writer.
