Description - The Door by Margaret Atwood
THE DOOR is Margaret Atwood s first book of poetry since the 1995 MORNING IN THE BURNED HOUSE. Its lucid yet urgent poems range in tone from lyric to ironic to meditative to prophetic, and in subject from the personal to the political viewed in its broadest sense. They investigate the mysterious writing of poetry itself, as well as the passage of time and our shared sense of mortality. As the New York Times has said, 'Atwood s poems are short, glistening with terse, bright images...'A brave and compassionate book, THE DOOR interrogates the certainties that we build our lives on.
