A groundbreaking meditation on sexual politics, love, and human tenacity from the world-renowned pioneer of feminist writing and prophetic author of The Handmaid's Tale, Margaret Atwood.
When it first appeared in 1971, Margaret Atwood's Power Politics startled readers with its vital dance of woman and man. It still startles today, and is just as iconoclastic as ever.
These poems occupy all at once the intimate, the political, and the mythic. Here Atwood makes us realise that we may think our own personal dichotomies are unique, but really they are multiple, universal. Clear, direct, wry, and unrelenting - Atwood's poetic powers are honed to perfection in this seminal work from her early career.
