    schema:description ""In Engendering Genre, renowned Atwood scholar Reingard M. Nischik analyzes the relationship between gender and genre in Margaret Atwood's works. The author approaches Atwood's oeuvre comprehensively by genre--poetry, prose poetry and short fictions, short stories, novels, criticism, comics, and Atwood's involvement with film--and examines them chapter by chapter. She explores how Atwood has developed these genres to be gender-sensitive in both content and form and argues that gender and genre are inherently complicit in Atwood's work: they converge to critique the gender-biased designs of traditional genres. This combination of gender and genre results in the recognizable Atwoodian style that engenders her texts, shaking and extending the boundaries of conventional genres and exploring them in new ways. The book includes the first extended and in-depth treatment of Atwood's cartoon art (reprinting nine of her comics) as well as the first survey of her involvement with film, and concludes with an interview with Margaret Atwood on her career "From Survivalwoman to Literary Icon."
