Reading Pathway: Margaret Atwood.

Margaret Atwood. Maggie. Companion of the Order of Canada. Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. Bad-ass bitch of Canadian letters. Margaret Atwood.

I have been finger-tied putting together this Reading Pathway about Margaret Atwood, because from my position as a (a) Canadian (b) feminist (c) academic working in (d) Canadian Literature, Maggie is my personal lord and saviour. The right answer to “what should I read by Margaret Atwood?” is EVERYTHING. RIGHT NOW. DO IT. I recognize that this is not at all helpful, but it has kept me all confused about how to approach the task of recommending a way into the enormous and diverse Atwood oeuvre.

Because that’s the thing: it’s maddeningly diverse. There’s speculative fiction and historical fiction, there’s poetry and non-fiction prose, there’s treatise on the history of Canadian Literature and some of the most exquisite fiction you will ever encounter. 13 novels, 9 short story collections, 20 poetry collections, and 10 works of non-fiction. And it’s pretty much all awesome. So where do we start?
