about

The appearance of Margaret Atwood's first major collection of poetry marked the beginning of a truly outstanding career in Canadian and international letters. The voice in these poems is as witty, vulnerable, direct, and incisive as we've come to know in later works, such as Power Politics, Bodily Harm, and Alias Grace. Atwood writes compassionately about the risks of love in a technological age, and the quest for identity in a universe that cannot quite be trusted.

Containing many of Atwood's best and most famous poems, The Circle Game won the 1966 Governor General's Award for Poetry and rapidly attained an international reputation as a classic of modern poetry. This beautiful edition of The Circle Game contains the complete collection, with an introduction by Sherrill E. Grace of the University of British Columbia.

Margaret Atwood is the author of more than forty books of fiction, poetry and critical essays. Her most recent books include the novel The Heart Goes Last (2015) and a collection of short stories called Stone Mattress: Nine Tales (2014). Forthcoming in 2016 are Hag-Seed, a novel revisitation of Shakespeare's play The Tempest, and Angel...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from yes~! Every person can identify with some feeling, some remark in this collection. The poem "The Circle Game" itself is heavy with emotion, and it makes the reader feel. This is one of my favorite collections from Atwood.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from still good after 30 years I first read The Circle Game when I was 16 or 17. It was a quiet day in the bookstore and I had finished all the cleaning and shelving for the day. As was my habit, I wandered the isles looking for hidden treats and inspiration. The thin little volume was almost lost amidst the larger Bukowskis Ferlingettis and Spicers. What I found within would go a long way toward teaching me that Atwood wasn't only what was forced upon kids in school. She wrote with wit, cleverness, sadness, thoughtfulness, hope and wonder, among others. I was excited and quickly tucked the slim text away for safe keeping.
