An omnibus edition of Margaret Atwood's poetry 1965 - 1995 including the latest collection Morning in the Burned House.
The evolution of Margaret Atwood's poetry illuminates one of our major literary talents. Here. As in her novels. Is intensity combined with sardonic detachment to the. And in. these early poems her genius for a level stare at the ordinary is wonderfully apparent. Just as startling is her ability to contrast the everyday with the terrifying: 'Each time I hit a key on my electric typewriter speaking of peaceful trees another village explodes.' Her poetic voice is crystal clear. insistent. unmistakably her own. Through bus trips and postcards. wilderness and trivia. she reflects the passion and energy of a writer intensely engaged with her craft and the world.
