Book Summary:

NOW A SMASH-HIT CHANNEL 4 TV SERIES 'It isn't running away they're afraid of. We wouldn't get far. It's those other escapes, the ones you can open in yourself, given a cutting edge' Offred is a Handmaid. She has only one function: to breed. If she refuses to play her part she will, like all dissenters, be hanged at the wall or sent out to die slowly of radiation sickness. She may walk daily to the market and utter demure words to other Handmaid's, but her role is fixed, her freedom a forgotten concept. Offred remembers her old life - love, family, a job, access to the news. It has all been taken away. But even a repressive state cannot obliterate desire. Includes exclusive content: In The 'Backstory' you can read Margaret Atwood's account of how she came to write this landmark dystopian novel 'Compulsively readable' Daily Telegraph

Book Summary:

In this seminal work of speculative fiction, the Booker Prize-winning author asks: In the world of the near future, who will control women's bodies? Soon to be a10-episode TV series produced by MGM Television, starring Elizabeth Moss (Madmen), Samira Wiley (Orange is the New Black), Joseph Fiennes, and Max Minghella Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if their ovaries are viable. Offred can remember the days before, when she lived and made love with her husband Luke; when she played with and protected her daughter; when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge. But all of that is gone now.... Funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing, The Handmaid's Tale is at once scathing satire, dire warning, andliterary tour de force.

MOST LOVED. MOST RED. Ten must-read modern classics. 'Nolite te bastardes carborundorum. Don't let the bastards grind you down.' Imagine a world where women's bodies are controlled by men.

A box set of Margaret Atwood's bestselling companioned novels, The Handmaid's Tale and The Testaments. In The Handmaid's Tale, environmental disasters and declining birthrates have led to a Second American Civil War and the rise of the Republic of Gilead, a totalitarian regime that enforces rigid social roles and enslaves the few remaining fertile women.

In The Testaments, set more than fifteen years after the events of The Handmaid's Tale, The Republic of Gilead maintains its repressive grip on power, but it is beginning to rot from within. At this crucial moment, the lives of three radically different women come together, with potentially explosive results.This beautifully designed slipcase will make the perfect holiday and perennial gift.

Book Summary:

« The Handmaid’s Tale » de Margaret Atwood nous rappelle la présence de la voix aux sources de la littérature première. En effet, le texte qu’elle nous livre se présente comme une transcription de bandes magnétiques enregistrées deux cents ans auparavant. Si Margaret Atwood s’emploie à rendre à l’écriture la force communicative du langage parlé, elle met également en avant le processus de recomposition de son histoire. Récit de vie enregistré sur bandes séparées et non numérotées, le texte est un assemblage de morceaux épars, de pièces rapportées, dont l’agencement est arbitraire et réversible. II se construit et se déconstruit sans cesse, se délite et se dérobe. Parce que le conte ressortit à une esthétique du fragment, Héliane Ventura s’est elle-même attachée à mettre en valeur les éclats, les morceaux, les pépites. Elle présente une série de six interprétations de textes (explications linéaires ou commentaires composés) qui, de l’incipit aux deux clausules, reconstitue la trame de l’existence de la Servante, livrée à la tyrannie, dans cet univers dystopique qui s’appelle ironiquement « la République de Galaad » et qui se situe à Boston sur la terre des anciens Puritains de la Nouvelle Angleterre à l’aube du vingt et unième siècle.
