The first collection of poems in more than a decade from the best-selling Margaret Atwood

The Door is Margaret Atwood's first book of poetry since Morning in the Burned House in 1995. Its fifty lucid yet urgent poems range in tone from lyric to ironic to meditative to prophetic, and in subject from the personal to the political viewed in its broadest sense. They investigate the mysterious writing of poetry itself, as well as the passage of time and our shared sense of mortality. The collection begins with poems that consider the past and ends with harbingers of things to come. Personal and compelling, The Door interrogates the certainties that we build our lives on.
