Summary (From the publisher):

This is the fourth book of poems by a brilliant young Canadian poet, author of the celebrated Journals of Susanna Moodie, who now has a large following in both Canada and the United States. Margaret Atwood's poetry evokes a disturbing landscape of metamorphosis, of quick shifts in perspective, of stretching and vanishing time. This new collection both polarizes and attempts to reconcile violence and peace, the personal and the political, the irrevocable past and the inescapable present. It is a poetry that reflects an acute perception of the ambiguities of the self and its environment.
