What do you think about the Atwood's poems I reproduced in the handout? What is their intention?
Do you find them violent, repulsive, exaggerated, humorous? Do you find any aesthetic value in them.
Look at the poems from Power Politics: who is the "you"? Who is the "I"? Read "Notes Towards a Poem that Can Never Be Written"? Do you think that speaker in this poem has the right to speak for the victims?
