    Having just read part of Pope’s The Dunciad, I read Margaret Atwood’s “King Log in Exile” for the birthday readathon.

    I am currently reading Blind Assassin for the for the second time and finding so many new and exciting tid bits that I did not recognize before!!! This novel is what introduced me to the wonderful and brilliant world of Margaret Atwood…. Now I have read a good majority of her works and am even more in awww of her story telling abilities.

  4. Stephanie says:

    Oh, and Happy Birthday!!!

  5. sarah says:

    Have read quite a bit by her lately, most recently The Penelopiad and Moral Disorder. I think she just keeps getting better.

    I have been reading Margaret Atwood all semester in a major authors course (she so deserves the academic attention). I’ve enjoyed her books immensely. I read Alias Grace and Oryx and Crake before studying her works this semester but the reading was so much richer the second time around. Her attention to detail and voice is amazing and I always think of her character Grace Marks able to sew in such small and fine stitches (weaving as storytelling) when I think of her masterful craftsmanship. I am also a writer and hugely inspired by Atwood’s treatment of myth and folk/fairytale. Well now that this comment is growing to the length of a blog all its own, I will conclude with a heartfelt:

    Happy Birthday Margaret! 🙂

    I first read Rape Fantasies several years ago and fell in love with this style of writing. I am currently reading Moral Disorder and am still in love with the mix of sex, politics, the environment, and human relationships.

  8. Kaitlyn says:

    I am 8 years old. I just read ‘Up in the Tree’ by Margaret Atwood and I am doing a project on her for my Grade 3 class. I just loved this book. Happy Birthday Margaret Atwood!

    I just read Death By Landscape for my class at U of T and LOVED it!! I’ve also read many of Atwood’s novels and have enjoyed them all.
