Naturally there are a fair number of books on this subject, but I thought it would be interesting to post some of them - older books or newer titles.

I was browsing through Amazon's lit crit section and found a couple of Atwood-related titles; here's one:

The Cambridge Introduction to Margaret Atwood

due out November of 2010.
I do always like these books because most have something in them I've not thought about. A different perspective on a particular book, perhaps.

Engendering Genre: The Works of Margaret Atwood by Reingard M. Nischik.

University of Ottawa, paperback, January 2010

In Engendering Genre, renowned Margaret Atwood scholar Reingard M. Nischik reveals the relationship between gender and genre in Atwood’s works. The author approaches Atwood’s oeuvre by genre – poetry, short stories, novels, criticism – and examines them individually. She explores how gender issues influence each of them and how Atwood has developed these genres to be gender-sensitive in both their content and form. She argues that gender and genre are inherently complicit in Atwood’s work: they converge to critique the intrinsically gender-biased designs of traditional genres. This combination of gender and genre results in the recognizable Atwoodian style that blurs and blends the boundaries of conventional genres, exploring them in new ways.
