Summary (From the publisher):

This is Margaret Atwood's sixth collection of poetry, her first since Power Politics. These new poems cover a wider range than ever before in her work, from the personal to the mythological, from the negative aspects of love to the joyously positive ones, from the spare to the sensuous, from satire to celebration. The journey from the first poem to the last is an intense and moving one, which takes the reader through the passionately-felt experience of loss, through surprising metamorphoses, to a sense of fresh possibilities and expanded vision.
