What’s up next for Margaret Atwood after sharing the Booker Prize for the sequel to one of the most beloved modern novels?
Returning to another past endeavor — this time, poetry.
Atwood’s publisher announced today, according to the Guardian, that her first collection of poems since 2007 will come out in November.
Dearly will feature “bodies and minds in transition, as well as the everyday objects and rituals that embed us in the present,” in the publisher’s words.
Atwood may be more popularly known as a novelist — in particular, as the author of The Handmaid’s Tale and The Testaments, her Booker Prize winner — but as the Guardian points out, she published and was celebrated for her poetry first.
