This is a nice, like-new, paperback edition “Margaret Atwood: Works and Impact (European Studies in North American Literature and Culture),” edited by Reingard M. Nischkik, ISBN-10: 9781571132697 and ISBN-13: ‎ 978-1571132697. Novelist, poet, and cultural critic, Margaret Atwood is one of the most fascinating, versatile, and productive authors of our time, a superb writer in any genre she chooses to tackle. This book was prepared on the occasion of Atwood's sixtieth birthday in November 1999. Its first aim is therefore to take stock of Atwood's multifarious works and international impact at the height of her creative powers. Secondly, the book serves as a wide-ranging introduction to the writer and her works. Fifteen informative articles written specifically for this volume by Atwood specialists from Canada, the USA, the UK, Germany, and France treat her life and status, her works (up-to-date survey articles on Atwood's novels, short fiction, poetry, and literary and cultural criticism), and important approaches to her works (from the standpoints of gender politics, mythology, ecology, popular culture, constructivism, and Canadian nationalism). A final section on creativity, transmission, and reception includes an interview with Atwood on creativity, statements by some of Atwood's important transmitters, including publishers, editors, literary agents, and translators, and some 15 statements by Atwood's fellow writers, in which they explore her importance for them. A number of photographs of Atwood, several cartoons drawn by and about her, plus an up-to-date bibliography of works by and about her, and an index, round out the volume. The book measures ‎‎‎6 x 0.74 x 9 inches and is 356 pages. This retails on Amazon for $21.26, plus tax. Asking price for this new book is $8.00!!
