There are lots of good reasons to read Margaret Atwood. Unless you have been living under a rock for the past 18 months, you will be well aware of the massive cultural impact that the smash hit show The Handmaid’s Tale had on audiences all over the world. The dystopian drama starring Elisabeth Moss was adapted from the novel of the same name, written by legendary Canadian author Margaret Atwood in 1985. Along with The Handmaid’s Tale, Atwood has been the creative mind behind so many other thought-provoking and unforgettable stories including "Alias Grace," "The Blind Assassin," "MaddAddam" and "Cat’s Eye." If you are a lover of literature and are looking for a new challenge to sink your teeth into, here are just a few of the many reasons to read Margaret Atwood.

1. Feminist Perspective

Not only does Atwood provide riveting and fantastic storylines for readers, she also provides a wonderful feminist voice. Many of her novels are told from the perspective of female characters facing patriarchal oppression, and her poetry also does lots of examination of negative roles of women in society. Although she herself has been reluctant to use the word β€˜feminist’ in the past, there is no doubting that she is a leading creative voice for women and women-centric issues and ideology. And that's one of the best reasons to read Margaret Atwood.
