Summary
When first published in 1972, Survival was considered the most startling book ever written about Canadian literature. Since then, it has continued to be read and taught, and it continues to shape the way Canadians look at themselves. Distinguished, provocative, and written in effervescent, compulsively readable prose, Survival is simultaneously a book of criticism, a manifesto, and a collection of personal and subversive remarks. Margaret Atwood begins by asking: What have been the central preoccupations of our poetry and fiction? Her answer is survival and victims
Summary
Margaret Atwood<U+2019>s “Survival” is comprised of twelve chapters that discuss Canadian fiction and poetry and acts as a book of criticism, a manifesto, and a collection of sometimes subversive personal remarks.
