Margaret Atwood, Ottawa, 1939

Margaret Atwood es una poeta y novelista canadiense. Escritora de más de 20 obras cuyos temas principales giran alrededor de los avances en la ciencia y la importancia del feminismo para ayudar a cambiar la sociedad. En 2008 fue galardonada con el Premio Príncipe de Asturias de las Letras. Una de sus obras más reconocidas es El cuento de la criada (1985), que fue adaptada cinematográficamente en los años 90 y actualmente cuenta con una serie en la plataforma digital HBO.

 

El cuento de la criada

(The Handmaid's Tale), 1985

La novela es una distopía feminista que refleja una crítica contra la sociedad del momento. La autora expone las consecuencias de vivir en un mundo contaminado y con una estructura eminentemente patriarcal. La República de Gilead es el ejemplo de ese país del futuro en el que los seres humanos nos veremos obligados a vivir si no provocamos un cambio del paradigma actual. La unión magistral entre la distopía feminista y el juego del narrador hace que esta sea una de las novelas más importantes de Margaret Atwood.

 

Temas y símbolos

El cuerpo de la mujer como instrumento político,

Lenguaje y poder,

Opresión y mansedumbre,

Violencia contra la mujer,

La religión como como instrumento político.
