The DoorBook - 2007
Brave and compassionate, The Door interrogates the certainties that we build our lives on, and reminds us once again of Margaret Atwood’s unique accomplishments as one of the finest and most celebrated writers of our time.
Baker & Taylor
A collection of poems that gravitate between the personal and political, the lyrical and meditative, and the ironic and prophetic, exploring such themes as the writing of poetry, the awareness of mortality, and the passage of time.
The first anthology of poetry in more than a decade from the renowned author of The Handmaid's Tale features fifty richly varied poems that range in tone and subject matter, from the personal to the political, and from the lyric and ironic to meditative and prophetic, as they explore the writing of poetry itself, the passage of time, mortality, and more.

QuotesAdd a Quote
Why is it you reject them, / them and their tangled harmonies / and raffish madrigals? / Because they thwart your will.
When you stand on bare earth in your bare feet / and the lightning whips through you, two ways / at once, they say you are grounded, / and that's what poetry is: a hot wire. / You might as well stick a fork / in a wall socket. So don't think it's just about flowers. / Though it is, in a way.
