Summary :

Margaret Atwood - the most discussed and widely-read writer in Canada - has achieved eminence as a poet, novelist, and a critic. But it is in her highly-charged poems that her literary personality is most impressive and her complex sensibility most exciting. Her six collections, published between 1966 and 1974, have elicited amazement, pleasure, discussion, and study to an extent that is quite unique in Canadian letters. In choosing this selection from The Circle Game, The Animals in That Country, Procedures for Underground, Power Politics and You Are Happy -- The Journals of Susanna Moodie is reproduced in full - she makes available to her readers an even more intense experience of her remarkable imagination.
