Summary
Strange Things explores a part of the imaginative landscape of one of the most esteemed and popular of contemporary writers, Margaret Atwood. Atwood's witty and informative book focuses on the imaginative mystique of the wilderness of the Canadian North. She discusses the 'Grey Owl Syndrome' of white writers going native; the folklore arising from the mysterious - and disastrousFranklin expedition of the nineteenth century; the myth of the dreaded snow monster, the Wendigo; the relations between nature writing and new forms of Gothic; and how a fresh generation of women writers in Canada have adapted the imagery of the Canadian North for the exploration of contemporary themes of gender, the family, and sexuality. Writers discussed include Robert Service, Robertson Davies, Alice Munro, E. J. Pratt, Marian Engel, Margaret Laurence, and Gwendolyn MacEwan
