Scope and content

The latest accession of Margaret Atwood’s papers complements and builds on the Atwood Papers held at the Fisher Library. It consists of a large collection of juvenilia, both her’s and her brother’s, as well as letters written by Atwood to her parents over a 40- year period. The papers also include manuscripts, including the holograph drafts of individual poems, from Atwood’s collection of poems, The Door (published in 2007), as well as manuscripts and editorial material for Moral Disorder and the stage version of The Penelopiad.
