  • How Far Would You Go' Trajectories of Revenge in Margaret
           Atwood’s Short Fiction
    • Authors: Barzilai S.
      Pages: 316 - 335
      Abstract: In many of Margaret Atwood’s stories, neither love nor money makes the world or, rather, the plot go round. The prime interest and profit for her offended protagonists often derives from a satisfactorily accomplished revenge. The ancient law of talion, of an-eye-for-an-eye, presides over these stories. This paper explores the two main responses to injury and aggression that correspond to the chronological trajectory of Atwood’s writings. In her early short fiction, retaliatory drives are typically directed inward. The (mainly female) victims tend to punish themselves rather than their aggressors. In the later fiction, by contrast, outer-directed reprisal becomes the reactive rule. As selected instances will show, Atwood’s human and nonhuman avengers, including nature itself, increasingly find varied ways to strike back at offenders.

  • Introduction
    • Authors: Tolan F.
      Pages: 291 - 296
      Abstract: Margaret Atwood’s bibliography, as it appears on her website, stretches to nearly ninety discrete items, exclusive of reviews and critical articles (which one imagines she must surely have lost count of by now). It includes sixteen novels, eight short-story collections, and seventeen poetry collections; it encompasses children’s books, graphic novels, nonfiction, television scripts, and edited works. The earliest item is Double Persephone, a poetry pamphlet published with the small press Hawkshead, in 1961, and the most recent is her contribution to the Hogarth Shakespeare Project, Hag-Seed, a reimagining of The Tempest, published in 2016. It is, by any account, a formidable record of literary achievement. It points, most readily, of course, simply to Atwood’s longevity: she is a writer approaching nearly sixty years of recorded publishing. It also, however, draws attention to her versatility as a writer. Primarily and popularly known as a novelist and, to those more familiar with her work, as a poet and short-story writer, Atwood has published nonfiction texts such as On Writers and Writing (2002) and Payback (2008) – not to mention children’s stories such as Up in the Tree (1978, with a facsimile reprint published in 2006), or her developing graphic novel series, Angel Catbird (2016–17) – that are inextricable elements of an extraordinary career. These works are, perhaps inevitably, frequently deemed peripheral to the real business of novel writing. Nevertheless, in their disparate elements – encompassing as they do, incisive literary critical reflection, deeply serious political and environmental commentary, and a playful readiness to experiment with language and genre – these auxiliary works constitute an instructive account of what might be termed distinctively Atwoodian about Atwood.

  • True Trash: Genre Fiction Revisited In Margaret Atwood’s Stone Mattress,
           The Heart Goes Last, And Hag-Seed
    • Authors: Howells C.
      Pages: 297 - 315
      Abstract: Margaret Atwood, an enthusiast for popular fiction since childhood, has frequently described its appeal for her: “I find popular forms interesting because they are collective mythology – a wonderful compost that contains everything. It contains the cultural patterns of the society, and what novels are using are the themes of their culture. Every time” (“How to Spot a Killer” 17). Throughout her fifty-year writing career, Atwood’s wonderfully inventive use of popular fictional forms has been a consistent feature of her work. Since the first collection of critical essays in The Malahat Review: Margaret Atwood: A Symposium (1977), scholars have been investigating her subversive rewriting of popular genres as significant elements in her novels, short fictions, and poetry, seeing them variously as components of her postmodern aesthetic and her narrative experimentalism with its feminist inflections, and her critique of contemporary social and political issues. Indeed, Atwood herself has been a major commentator on genre fiction in interviews and essays and In Other Worlds: SF and the Human Imagination (2011), where she wittily distinguishes between realistic novels (“the novel proper”) and those “of lesser solemnity” called ‘genre fiction’ . . . the spy thriller and the crime story and the adventure story and the supernatural tale and the science fiction” (Other Worlds 57–58). That enthusiasm for popular forms continues undiminished in her recent fictions since the MaddAddam trilogy with Stone Mattress (2014), The Heart Goes Last (2015), and her retelling of Shakespeare’s The Tempest in Hag-Seed (2016). Now ironically describing herself as ‘an award-winning nice literary old lady’ (Angel Catbird 2016, Introduction), Atwood has shifted the emphases in her storytelling, challenging realist conventions as she revisits an array of popular genres, constructing what we might describe as transgressive entertainments. While she references the idioms and new technologies of contemporary culture, she seeks as always to engage readers with her seriously held ethical values, which are embedded in the texts themselves. “Not real can tell us about real” (Oryx and Crake 118), and it this latest stage in the evolution of Atwood’s narrative art that I investigate in this essay.

  • Margaret Atwood’s Reception in Canada and the United States: A
           Comparative Analysis of North American Reviews of The Blind Assassin
    • Authors: Nischik R.
      Pages: 354 - 372
      Abstract: Based on a large corpus of reviews from Canada and the USA and taking into account my recent large-scale study of the reception of Margaret Atwood’s earlier novels in both North American countries, this article investigates how the reviewer’s nationality and that of the review’s target audience factor into the reception of a writer’s works. This is exemplarily documented in a case study of Atwood’s novel The Blind Assassin (2000), published at the end of her middle creative period. What do the reviews focus on and are there any striking differences attributable to the national and cultural context the review was written in and for' Was the evaluative response to the novel in the two North American countries similar or did it deviate significantly'

  • Self/Image: Reading the Visual in Atwood’s Fictive Autobiographies
    • Authors: Davies M.
      Pages: 373 - 390
      Abstract: Margaret Atwood’s extensive back catalogue includes a group of fictive autobiographies, each engaged in a self-reflexive consideration of the problems involved in writing a life story. These fictive meta-autobiographies consciously critique any act of self-representation within narrative in a radical challenge to phallogocentric models of life-writing and truth-telling. This group of texts (including Cat’s Eye [1988], Lady Oracle [1976], The Handmaid’s Tale [1985], and The Blind Assassin [2000], as well as some of Atwood’s poetry) also incorporates a dominant use of visual images, particularly photographs: each extending questions involving the “real,” the “copy,” origination, attribution, and authority. These questions open up new ways of considering how text and image conspire to defer certainty in the objective and subjective “real,” as Atwood’s visual texts prove to be as duplicitous as the language through which they are narrated. This article connects with critical accounts of life-writing and with Susan Sontag’s reflections on photography in order to discuss the status of the visual image as an agent of representation within any autobiographical account.

  • Imagining Beyond Extinctathon: Indigenous Knowledge, Survival, Speculation
           – Margaret Atwood’s and Ann Patchett’s Eco-Gothic
    • Authors: Wisker G.
      Pages: 412 - 431
      Abstract: Both Margaret Atwood and Ann Patchett engage with issues concerning indigenous knowledge, biodiversity, and survival. Margaret Atwood constructs a form of wilderness Gothic in Surfacing (1972) and Survival (1972); while in her darker eco-Gothic texts, The Handmaid’s Tale (1985) and the MaddAddam trilogy (Oryx and Crake [2003]; The Year of the Flood [2009]; MaddAddam [2013]), she focuses on survival post holocaust. Atwood’s work is influenced by indigenous knowledge and the awareness of imminent disaster should people fall out of harmony with nature, a threat enacted in these Canadian eco-Gothic dystopian fictions. This threat of extinction, of natural disaster based on arrogantly, deliberately, or accidentally ignoring the importance of ecological diversity and balance, informs much of Atwood's writing. Her work emphasises contestation, different voices and ways of being, throughout her writing career and her everyday life. Indigenous knowledge also interests many other women writers, including Ann Patchett from the US (State of Wonder [2011]), Alexis Wright from Australia (The Swan Book [2013]), Patricia Grace from New Zealand, (Baby No-Eyes [1998]), and Nalo Hopkinson from Jamaica/Toronto (“A Habit of Waste” [2001]); each of whom recognizes the importance of diversity, explores threats to survival, and suggests ways forward. Several of these writers, including Ann Patchett, evidence Atwood’s influence on a younger generation of women writers. In this essay, I link Atwood’s work to that of Ann Patchett, specifically to her novel State of Wonder, which problematizes the involvement of nonindigenous with indigenous people and their tribal behaviors, beliefs, and the rich forest and jungle worlds where they live in balanced harmony. Atwood and Patchett bring gender and sustainability issues to the fore by their use of eco-Gothic, emphasizing the damage done to natural processes (including fertility) by exploitation and unnatural controls. Both authors highlight lessons to be learned from indigenous values, behaviors, and wisdom, without underestimating the difficulties of translation, and the vulnerability of the peoples and their environments. Each shows the damage of their misuse or loss.

  • MaddAddam, Biocapitalism, and Affective Things
    • Authors: Defalco A.
      Pages: 432 - 451
      Abstract: This essay considers the ethical dimensions of Atwood’s recent speculative fiction, the MaddAddam trilogy (2003–14), alongside a framework that Nikolas Rose, Sunder Rajan, and others term as biocapitalism. The trilogy imagines the social, cultural, affective, and ecological implications of the convergence of capitalism and biotechnology. In the MaddAddam trilogy, the fantasy of human independence and invulnerability central to neoliberalism and biocapitalism is depicted at its devastating endgame, in which the unbridled commodification of life has resulted in its near annihilation. Atwood’s novels suggest that we ignore interdependence, affectivity, and responsibility to our peril, evoking a posthumanist perspective in the dramatization of a catastrophic anthropocentrism that regards organic matter – the world’s flora and fauna, the human body’s cellular data – as marketable, utilitarian objects.

  • “I could say that, too”: An Interview with Margaret Atwood
    • Authors: Tolan F.
      Pages: 452 - 464
      Abstract: This interview with Margaret Atwood was conducted via email in September 2016, and thus fell squarely between the Brexit vote (The United Kingdom European membership referendum of 23 June 2016) and, in the United States, Donald Trump’s electoral victory over Hillary Clinton (8 November 2016). The outcomes of both democratic events have subsequently been thoroughly parsed for their wider sociocultural significances. Most commonly, they have been held to mark a rising tide of populism, a splintering of the political consensus into further extremes of left and right, and – in the editorials and opinion pieces of international newspapers, from The Globe and Mail to Der Spiegel and Le Monde – a concerted attack on foundational tenets of liberal democracy.
