Atwood Four Poems

Poetry Club discusses four more poems of the newly released collection “Dearly” in Part 3 of Poetry Club Talks…Margaret Atwood.

We acknowledge the returning pattern to environmental questions that demand answers, the silence in between the molecules, and enjoy the way she examines love relationships.  Poetry Club has enjoyed discussing this poet’s new work.  We appreciate the sounds, stories, and images Atwood brings to the page.  Pick up a copy today.

Poetry Club Talks…Margaret Atwood Part 2

Topic: Margaret Atwood’s “Dearly”
Host: Ron
Poems: “Passport” and poems 1, 3, 7 of “Plasticene Suite”

“Passport” and “PLASTICENE SUITE”

Poetry Club explores two more poems in the newly released collection “Dearly” by Margaret Atwood.  The poems spur many questions.  Do we keep items like full passports to preserve information, or do they help define our identity?  Can humankind end our dependence on plastic and return to the life described by Atwood “..with only paper and glass and tin with hemp and leather and oilskin?”

Ron is the host and shares this message: “Hello, poetry club types.  The attachment provides a dozen poems from Margaret Atwood’s recently published book, “Dearly.”  I have highlighted in bold half a dozen that might provide a focus for our discussion this coming Saturday.  It will be fine with me if we devote some time to all of them.”

“Blizzard” and “Late Poems”

Canadian artists lace the minds of Poetry Club this Saturday.  At the beginning of our discussion, we reflect briefly on the career of actor Christopher Plummer, who passed away the day before we met, on February 5th.
Then on the agenda, we begin a two-part series exploring the new poetry work of Margaret Atwood.  Ron is the host and shares this message:
