About this title:

Synopsis:

The author of The Handmaid’s Tale and Oryx and Crake engagingly explores her lifelong relationship to science fiction, both as a reader and as a writer.
 
At a time when the borders between literary genres are increasingly porous, Margaret Atwood maps the richly fertile crosscurrents of speculative and science fiction, slipstream, utopias and dystopias, and fantasy, and muses on their roots in the age-old human impulse to imagine new worlds. She shares the evolution of her personal fascination with this branch of literature, from her days as a child inventing a race of flying superhero rabbits, to her graduate study of the Victorian ancestors of SF to her appreciations of such influential writers as Marge Piercy, Rider Haggard, Ursula K. LeGuin, Kazuo Ishiguro, Aldous Huxley, and Jonathan Swift. As humorous and charming as it is insightful and provocative, In Other Worlds brilliantly illuminates “the wilder storms on the wilder seas of invention.”

Book Description Little, Brown Book Group, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. From her days as a child reader in the 1940s, through her time at Harvard, where she studied the Victorian ancestors of the form, and later as a writer and reviewer, Margaret Atwood has always been fascinated with science fiction. Here she brings together three Ellmann lectures: Flying Rabbits begins with her early rabbit superhero creations, and goes on to speculate about masks, capes, weakling alter egos and Things with Wings; Burning Bushes travels into Victorian otherlands and beyond; and Dire Cartographies investigates Utopias and Dystopias, including Atwood s own ventures into those constructions. In further essays Atwood explores and critiques the form, and elucidates the differences - as she sees them - between science fiction proper, and speculative fiction , not to mention sword and sorcery , fantasy and slipstream fiction . In Other Worlds is a must. Seller Inventory # AA29781844087556
