Product Description

From Amazon

The poetic/artistic exploration of what it means to find yourself thrown into a hostile environment, these poems by Margaret Atwood and silk-screen illustrations by Charles Pachter are based on the journals of Canadian pioneer Susanna Moodie. The setting allows Atwood to write cutting lines about the fundamental tensions in creating and defining a self. One such tension, the assertion of will on the world as well as on one's self, set against the spirit-crushing tribulations of loneliness and hopelessness, is especially electric. The Journals of Susanna Moodie is a beautiful and hypnotic book. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Review

"The poetry is moving, readable, engaging, and beautifully printed with Pachter's powerful, expressionistic, and highly original images.…A wonderful complement of poetry and visual art; Susanna Moodie's story is not lost in this burst of virtuosity."
Peterborough Examiner

"A fascinating and captivating marriage of text and graphics.…Begun as a private collaboration that bears witness to a deep and lasting friendship, this handsome, reasonably priced facsimile edition is the perfect gift for the lover of literature."
Kitchener Waterloo Record --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
"The Journals of Susanna Moodie" poems are interesting and spare in style. I have not gone through the whole collection, but Margaret Atwood has written a thought-provoking account (through poems) of Susanna Moodie. Any serious or avid poem reader should consider this collection of related poems.
