Praise for Margaret Atwood’s poetry:
“Atwood’s poems are short, glistening with terse, bright images, untentative, closing like a vise…A plain, explicit poetry, perfectly sure of itself.”—New York Times
“The Door is one of the best books by one of the best poets writing in English.”—Times Literary Supplement
“Margaret Atwood is best known, of course, as a novelist. But she brings to her poetry the same sharp eye and stinging wit.”—Washington Post
“Atwood is always vital, powerful, magnetically readable…Readers who know only her novels really owe it to themselves to read her poems.”—Booklist
