The evolution of Margaret Atwood´s poetry illuminates a major literary talent. Through bus trips and postcards, wilderness and trivia, she reflects the passion and energy of a writer intensely engaged with her craft and the world. In this volume, two previous selections, Poems 1965-1975 and Poems 1976-1986 are presented together with Morning in the Burned House.
´Detached, ironic, loving by turns . . . poems that sing off the page and sting´ Michèle Roberts
