JOUR 53 Une chronique de @claireporch ! J’avais très peur de lire ce livre, je m’attendais à une lecture difficile, qui ferait mal à mon cœur de féministe. Au contraire, j’ai découvert un ouvrage passionnant, envoûtant, brillamment écrit et structuré. Nous sommes à Gilead, qui était autrefois les Etats-Unis, maintenant une théocratie dictatoriale particulièrement effrayante, où les femmes sont assignées à des rôles définis : Epouses, Marthas (domestiques) ou Servantes, dont la fonction est d’assurer la reproduction. En raison d’une crise de fertilité et grâce à l’exhumation de la tradition de la mère porteuse existant dans la Genèse (Jacob/Rachel/Bilha), il a été décidé que les hommes de l’élite, appelés Commandants, pourraient posséder chacun une Servante qui porterait et mettrait au monde leurs enfants. Il existe également des Econofemmes, qui font un peu de tout : ce sont les femmes pauvres. Le génie de l’univers de Margaret Atwood, c’est que les hommes sont autant contrôlés que les femmes, en particulier en ce qui concerne le sexe et le statut marital : les hommes doivent servir dans l’armée plusieurs années avant d’avoir le droit de se marier, et bien entendu tout sexe hors mariage est prohibé. La définition de la littérature ? Dans sa postface, Margaret Atwood explique qu’elle a choisi de ne rien inventer que l’humanité n’ait déjà fait à un moment ou à un autre de son histoire, et de ne pas se reposer sur des inventions technologiques improbables. Elle a aussi constaté que les dictatures du vingtième siècle s’établissaient sur des fondations typiques du pays et de sa culture : c’est la raison pour laquelle elle a fait des Etats-Unis une théocratie. L’effet de réel fonctionne donc particulièrement bien, et c’est terrifiant.

Had all kinds of plans for my weekend but unfortunately I’m spending it sick instead... which also means I haven’t been able to bake or take pictures lately. Luckily awhile back I snapped this shot of the Handmaid’s Tale bookmark I made for @whatithriftedtoday before I mailed it off. Here’s hoping a few days of sleep, tea, and NyQuil will cure me! #bookstagram #handmaidstale #boo#bookmark> #bookmark #watercolor #booksandcoffee #vintageclassics #prettycover #thehandmaidstale #margaretatwood

Re-read the entire The Handmaid’s Tale by the brilliant Canadian writer Margaret Atwood last night, in bed, in the dark... (iBooks). Having now re-watched the Hulu series twice (backwards, then forwards), I hearby declare my fixation with this hypnotic and terrifying work of fiction, over! #phew @handmaidsonhulu #margaretatwood Season Two airs April 25th, #uhoh

I've now read 29 #man#manbooker50 winners. These are my favorites. Each one of them transported me to a different place and time. I think I've bought over 100 copies of these books as gifts for friends who read. . . #bookstagram #reading #manbooker50 #marlonjames #benokri #hilarymantel #richardflanagan_thenarrowroadtothedeepnorth #petercarey #thetruehistoryofthekellygang #theghostroad #patbarker #margaretatwood #eleanorcatton

(2017, Doğan Kitapta 1. Baskı, yeni) Margaret Atwood’un başyapıt niteliğindeki feminist distopyası Damızlık Kızın Öyküsü, bütün distopyalar gibi geleceğe dair bir paranoyayı değil, içinde yaşadığımız gerçeğin ta kendisini dile getiriyor. Erkek egemen muhafazakâr bir rejimin üremeyle sınırlandırdığı, mahrem örtülerin  ardına gizlediği kadın bedenleriyle bize aşina gelen bir gerçeğin.

⭐Book Review⭐ “Sometimes at night I whisper it over to myself: Murderess, Murderess. It rustles, like a taffeta skirt across the floor.” Grace Marks, at the age of 16 in 1843, was arrested for the murders of her employer, Thomas Kinnear, and his mistress/housekeeper, Nancy Montgomery. It was rather sensationalized in Canada because of the brutality of the crime along with the fact that a young, pretty girl was involved. Grace spent the next thirty years of her life incarcerated, first in an asylum and then in a prison. We meet Grace some years after she is in prison when she must narrate her life story to a mental health doctor, Simon Jordan. Names of quilt patterns are used as titles of the 15 book sections in Alias Grace, making parallels between Grace's interest in quilts and the meanings of their patterns. Each section begins with a series of epigraphs, combining historical documents, poetry, "witness accounts" and so forth, ultimately questioning the validity of each. Even though she isn’t educated, she is certainly intelligent and perceptive and a thoroughly elusive character. Several times in the story she muses that since it’s her story, she’ll tell it as she pleases. We know she Isn’t reliable at all, but we also can’t hold it against her as everyone has already condemned her to be a murderess. No wonder the doctor dreamt of locked doors that won’t open. Grace is an unreliable narrator throughout the entire novel and she remains an enigma even at the end. But she is not an unsympathetic character at all and it’s easy to like her sly ways of telling her story, her secret longings and the hope of escaping the prison someday. Even though it’s a dark read, Atwood managed to infuse humour in the writing and for that I adored Grace’s narrative even more, like for ex “People dressed in a certain kind of clothing are never wrong. Also, they never fart.” . Has anyone read Alias Grace? Or any book by Atwood?

Maids&Measures. My procrastination game is strong this afternoon. I'm doing everything I shouldn't; instead of dealing with IMPORTANT THINGS I'm going through my unread books deciding what to read next. The two books I'm most excited about right now are "The handmaid's tale" by Margaret Atwood and "Measure by Measure" by Shakespeare. The covers are twinning sort of, we'll see if there are similarities in the stories. #whptwinning #thehandmaidstale #margaretatwood #shakespeare #measureformeasure #currentlyreading #culturetripbooks #bookster #readstagram #readersofinstagram #alwaysreading #bookstagram #booksandtea #bookphotography #tulipomania #earlgrey #penguinstagram #penguinmug#dystopianlit

I bought this book because I had to read the first story in it for a class, but as it's Atwood, I just kept reading. This is such an amazing example of subtle feminist literature: characters that never become defined by their gender because it's just irrelevant information. I also love how respectfully she normalizes mental illness. . #book #bookstagram #instabook #margaretatwood #moraldisorder #moraldisorderandotherstories #shortstories #literature #canadianliterature #bookworm #booklover #bibliophile #feminism #feminist #feministliterature

Ensimmäinen lomakirjani ei ollut kevyimmästä päästä. Etukäteispainajaisesta huolimatta luin #orjattaresi yhdeltä istumalta. Atwoodin selkeärajainen, jopa jossain määrin kliininen kieli etäännytti tarinasta juuri sopivasti, niin ettei lukeminen tuntunut ollenkaan niin ahdistavalta kuin etukäteen pelkäsin. Dystopiat on mulle aina vähän haastavia, poissa mukavuusalueelta, mutta kieltämättä ne on usein todella vaikuttavia. Niin myös Orjattaresi. #margaretatwood #thehandmaidstale #lukemista

I'm in ❤ with my #Vintage editions! The red-sprayed edges, the naked cover, the simple but effective design and of course the gorgeous endpapers! Luckily these books don't just look pretty, they hold my favourite dystopian classic stories as well. #reading #bookstagram #igreads #bookporn #thehandmaidstale #margaretatwood #1984 #georgeorwell #bravenewworld #aldoushuxley @vintagebooks #instabuy

My #February reading wrap-up! I read 16 books this month (I'm still in the middle of #WonderWomanWarbringer, but I'll finish that before Wednesday). 📚 I loved all of my #FeministFebruary reads (Twilight is my guilty pleasure, don't @ me!). But if I had to choose my favourite read of the month, it's a tie between #theNowhereGirls by #AmyReed and #BadFeminist by @roxanegay74. Highly recommend both of them! 📚 #reading #bookstagram #igreads #taherehmafi #furthermore #whichwood #emilymdanforth #themiseductionofcameronpost #marawilson #whereaminow #marielu #batmannightwalker #stepheniemeyer #thepower #naomialderman #margaretatwood #thehandmaidstale #leighbardugo #lumberjanes #monstress #wiresandnerve #marissameyer #barbarastolk #vincent

Coucou ! Après les derniers post sur la nourriture... place à un peu de lecture 😉😁 ********************* Mon avis sur la servante écarlate : Difficile de passer à côté de la servante écarlate depuis la sortie de la série télévisée. Et puis, les commentaires élogieux m'ont poussée à découvrir ce récit. J'avoue que j'ai du mal à partager cet engouement. Certes c'est une histoire terrifiante car tellement emprunt de réalisme. ça m'a révolté de voir comment sont considérées ces femmes ; à des objets, des étiquettes, esclaves de leur nature et de leur corps. Quoique dans certains pays, les femmes ne sont pas mieux traitées. Bref ! Malgré une plume riche et soignée, parfois même poétique et mélancolique, j'ai eu un peu de mal à me familiariser avec la narration.  De plus, beaucoup de descriptions et de longueurs devenant un peu lassantes. Il n'y a vraiment qu'après la bonne moitié du livre qu'il se passe quelque chose. Par ailleurs, les souvenirs d'une vie normale se mêle à la narration du présent, et je me suis demandée parfois où j'en étais. Déçue par une fin trop précipitée, on a à peine le temps de comprendre ce qu'il se passe, j'aurais voulu en savoir plus sur l'implication des personnages. Une petite frustration pour ma part. Un récit original mais qui ne m'a pas fait sauter au plafond. A découvrir cependant. Ps: par contre la série télévisée me tente bien #margaretatwood #robertlaffont #pavillonspoche #thehandmaidstail #laservanteecarlate #instabook #bookstagram

#sweetbookschallenge jour 25: A comme... Atwood!!! Margaret Atwood! Autant vous dire que j'avais adoré "la servante écarlate", et que j'ai dévoré "c'est le coeur qui lâche en dernier". Cette capacité a écrire des roman, comme si c'était vrai, comme si ce n'etait pas une histoire mais bien la réalité, je trouve ça génial! Le fait que quand tu lis ton livre tu te dise "ah mais attend, ça peux carrément arriver", ça, c'est terrible! Bref si l'envie vous prend n'hésitez pas, ces deux la sont très bien, même si a mon avis, la servante écarlate est un peu plus compliqué. Il faut vraiment rentrer dans l'histoire rapidement pour ne pas perdre le fil. @therealmargaretatwood #margaretatwood #laservanteecarlate #cestlecoeurquilacheendernier #robertlaffont @robert_laffont #livre #lecture #boo#bookram #book #bookaholic

Two orange beauties I'm currently reading. I cannot stop talking about Alias Grace - with only thirty pages left to read I'm already anticipating a major book hangover. I will not miss having to drag it around everywhere, though. I'm leaving it home for today and taking Autumn because I'm afraid to finish it too soon and be left with nothing to read🙈 Does anyone else share this fear?

Every now and then, I have this inner debate on whether I should read the book first, or watch the tv series/movie first. So I made this judgment: If the book is less than 600 pages, I choose the paper version. Not much different from @sarskyrs obv 😆 #boo#bookstagram #thehandmaidstale #margaretatwood #biglittlelies #lianemoriarty #bookstagram #nowreading #lat#latteart #latte

One of my favorite authors is #margaretatwood. I've been to most of her book events in NYC. She has a dedicated shelf for her books. They are never loaned out. Even though The Blind Assassin is a #manbooker50 winner, it stays with the Atwood collection. . . . #bookstagram #reading
