About this product
- DescriptionMargaret Atwood's writing, according to Davey, reveals t only an extraordinary facility with language, but also a deep mistrust of it as something shaped by an instrumental and largely male culture. Her language directs its readers to a hidden level of itself -- unspoken, symbolic, gestural -- and away from detative meaning. In discussions of her poetry, fiction, short stories, and criticism, Davey offers a 'glossary' of recurrent Atwood images and symbols that can open this hidden level in nearly all of her writing.
- Author BiographyFrank Davey Born in Vancouver, Frank Davey attended the University of British Columbia where he was a co-founder of the avant-garde poetry magazine TISH. Since 1963, he has been the editor-publisher of the poetics journal Open Letter. In addition, he co-founded the world's first on-line literary magazine, SwiftCurrent in 1984. Davey writes with a unique panache as he examines with humour and irony the ambiguous play of signs in contemporary culture, the popular stories that lie behind it, and the struggles between different identity-based groups in our globalizing society--racial, regional, gender-based, ethnic, economic--that drive this play.
