Abstract:

"In Margaret Atwood Revisited, Karen Stein provides an introductory overview of Atwood's works, focusing on their central themes, especially the paradoxes and possibilities of storytelling, sexual politics, and quests. Atwood's protagonists are storytellers, says Stein, witnesses to a world that is often confusing and dangerous; the fictions these characters invent about their lives can become traps, self-fulfilling prophecies, or liberating fictions." "Margaret Atwood Revisited will be a resource for both scholars and students."--BOOK JACKET.
