Contemporary Literature in Close Up.
In 'Vintage Living Texts' teachers and students will find the essential guide to the works of Margaret Atwood, author of 'The Handmaid's Tale', 'Bluebeard's Egg', and 'The Blind Assassin' and other stories.
This guide deals with Atwood's themes, genre and narrative technique, and a close reading of the texts is accompanied with likely exam questions - as well as providing a rich source of ideas for intelligent and inventive ways of approaching the novels.
Also included are detailed reading plans for all three novels, questions for essays and discussion, contextual material, suggested texts for complementary and comparative reading, a picture essay, extracts from reviews, a biography, a bibliography, a reading list of literary criticism and a glossary of literary terms.
Whether a teacher, student or general reader, 'Vintage Living Texts' gives you the chance to explore new resources and enjoy new pleasures.
