Item:183998885318A signed 1st edition of the highly rated 1995 poetry collection from award-winning and hugely influential Canadian author, poet, critic and essayist Margaret Atwood, who won the Booker Prize in 2000 for 'The Blind Assassin' and has long been considered a candidate for the Nobel Prize for Literature. Her latest book, 'The Testaments ', the long-awaited sequel to one of her most famous books, 1985's 'The Handmaid's Tale ', was announced at the gala award evening on 14 October 2019 as the Winner of the Booker Prize for 2019 in a shock announcement to share the award with Barnardine Evaristo. 'Morning In The Burned House: New Poems ' published by McClelland & Stewart, Toronto on 1 April 1995, 1st edition, medium modern hardback, [xii] + 127 pages. Flat hand signed by Margaret Atwood at the title page. Internally in New unread condition. Externally in fine condition, dustjacket in removable protective plastic sleeve, light spotting to top edge of text block. These beautifully crafted poems-by turns dark, playful, intensely moving, tender and intimate-come together as Atwood's most accomplished and versatile gathering of poems to date, 'setting foot on the middle ground/between body and word.' Some draw on history, and on myth, both classical and popular. Other, more personal poems concern themselves with love, with the fragility of the natural world, and with death-especially in the elegiac series of meditations on the death of a parent-as they inhabit a contemporary landscape haunted by images of the past. Generous, compassionate, disturbing, this is poetry that emanates from the heart of human experience and seeks balance between the luminous realm of memory and the realities of everyday, between darkness and light, the capacity to perpetrate and the strength to forgive. Morning in the Burned House is infused with breathtaking insight, technical virtuosity, and a clarity of vision that has the force to change the way we look at our lives.
