REAL: Review of English and American Literature [Yingmei wenxue pinglun]

This paper is a study of the textual strategies used by Margaret Atwood to imbue her poetry with new ideas for Canadian cultural identity. This study focuses on analyzing Atwood’s creative use of collaged pictorial illustration and Gothic narrative techniques in her famous poetic series—The Journals of Susanna Moodie (published in 1970). Atwood’s poetic series contains 27 narrative poems, rewriting the most well-known immigrant life story of Susanna Strickland Moodie (1803-1852). In terms of Susanna Moodie’s three different stages of settling herself in the Canadian wilderness, Atwood’s poetry relates and reexamines the nineteenth century English Canadian settler history. Atwood’s writing throws light on Canadian postcolonial imagination as Atwood traces the change—the growth and development—in Moodie’s response to the land.
