Approaches to Teaching Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale and Other Works

Editor(s): Sharon R. Wilson, Thomas B. Friedman, Shannon Hengen

Pages: ix & 215 pp.
Published: 1996
ISBN: 9780873527354

"The essays on pedagogical approaches to teaching various Atwood works are uniformly well written, succinct, and practical.... Recommended for all collections."

"The volume entirely lives up to my expectations: it contextualizes Atwood within Canadian culture rather than treating her 'just like' an American or British writer and provides usable background materials and classroom examples for college teachers of the astonishing variety of courses in which Atwood is taught."
Annis Pratt, author of Dancing with Goddesses: Archetypes, Poetry, and Empowerment

We are currently out of stock of the paperback edition of this title. The cloth edition will be substituted at the paperback price.

Margaret Atwood's works, especially The Handmaid's Tale, are widely taught not only in literature courses but also in economics, political science, sociology, film, and business courses. Her writings span a variety of genres and address such themes as identity, Canadian nationalism, struggle for survival, sexual politics, and shamanism; this rich and diverse range has proved fertile ground for teachers and critics alike. Approaches to Teaching Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale and Other Works is the first book to focus on the teaching of this writer's oeuvre exclusively.
