Irrespective of the fact that Margaret Atwood is mainly known as a writer, she has also managed to publish fifteen poetry books. A majority of the author’s poems have been inspired by myths and fairy tales, which have interested her, ever since she was young. Some of the short stories that Margaret Atwood has published include Alphabet, Tamarack Review, CBC Anthology and many others.

In the year 1965, Atwood taught at the University of British Colombia and the Sir George Williams University from the year 1967 to the year 1968. Later on in the year 1969, she taught at the University of Alberta for one year and York University for one year also, from the year 1971 to 1972.

The female intellectual dialogue members at the renowned Victoria College mainly surrounded Atwood. In a majority of her novels, she often portrays characters who are dominated by patriarchy. Atwood also sheds light on the social oppression of women due to the patriarchal ideology. When it comes to social science fiction and speculative fiction, the author has constantly resisted the idea that both of her novels, Oryx and Crake and The Handmaid’s Tale are science fiction. She has insisted that both of these novels are speculative fiction.

In the year 2008, The Economist a weekly magazine referred to Atwood as an expert literary critic and scintillating wordsmith. However, the magazine went on to comment that the author’s logic does not in any way match her writing style in the nonfiction book, Payback: Debt and Shadow.

Best Atwood Books

Handmaids Tale: According to Offred, the heroine of Atwood’s chilling future tale, Fear is an exceedingly powerful stimulant. Trained at the Leah and Rachel center and habited in the red, Offered is a member of the two-legged wombs or sacred vessels, a quasi-religious order whose main task is to create the next generation of the governing elite in the Gilead Republic. Gilead is a Puritan autocracy setup, after the successful assassination of the president and the United States Congress. Offred is confined to Cambridge City, Massachusetts, where local University is closed, and the American football stadium is used for execution of the public. In this book, the name Offred has been used rhetorically to either refer to Offered and Off-red. A majority of Atwood’s novels have not been written using a specific formula.

Like all of the other novels, this book is a starkly individual performance and unrepeatable. Furthermore, it is the science fiction fable, which Atwood had constantly hinted that she has intended to pen down.

Edible Woman: In the novel Edible Woman, which was published in the year 1969, one of the main characters was looking forward to the life after the cataclysm. A time when a birth was going to be essential once more and a new goddess of fertility, Venus Genetrix, was going to rise again. Despite the fact that the setting and structure of her novels is entirely different, there is a decipherable formula of Atwood’s heroine. They are observant, resourceful, frightened and wary. They are also determinedly free.

Apart from Offred, the author also introduces the reader to The Commander, who is a scientist involved in market research. Later on, it is hypothesized that he was indeed one of the architects of the republic and its laws. With that said, The Handmaid’s Tale is a compactly well-ordered reading experience.

When Does The Next Margaret Atwood book come out?
