Scope and content

This latest accession of the Margaret Atwood Papers complements and builds on the Atwood collections held at the Fisher Library. It consists of draft manuscripts for the 2008 Massey Lectures delivered by Atwood, collected and published as Payback: Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth (House of Anansi Press, 2008), as well as research material for the lectures. There is also an extensive collection of media clippings, including reviews, for the Atwood books Moral Disorder, The Tent, Up in the Tree and The Penelopiad (book and stage production), as well as correspondence, largely editorial (including marketing and book tour information) on those books. The papers also include correspondence from various friends and colleagues of Atwood, including June Callwood, Dorothy Livesay, John Newlove, James Reaney, Jane Rule and Carol Shields.
