Margaret Atwood's THE DOOR could very well have been subtitled UNSENTIMENTAL ELEGIES: the same clear-eyed, sometimes caustic observations that give her novels their energy and force are also everywhere apparent in this strong collection of short poems. At times intensely personal, Atwood's poems seek to find a common thread of humanity in their narration of such every day tragedies as the death of a beloved cat, or the slow onset of her mother's senility.

The Door, Margaret Atwood’s first book of poetry since her award-winning Morning in the Burned House, is a magnificent achievement. These fifty lucid, 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. Brave and compassionate, The Door interrogates the certainties that we build our lives on, and reminds us once again of Margaret Atwood’s unique accomplishments as one of the finest and most celebrated writers of our time.

Margaret Atwood paints emotional pictures with words in a way that few authors do. For me, she captures the essence of an emotional experience beautifully.

One of the best recent poets. Some fine work here.

From the cat in the freezer to dealing with her grief you will want to own this book to read and re-read.

i love Margaret Atwood's writing. I've read just about all of her books, so I was surprised this was a book of poetry. When I ordered it I didn't notice this fact. It isn't my cup of tea, but my intellect and life style aren't very conducive to reading poetry. I may give it another try after some time has passed, but on first blush it was not my thing.

Margaret Atwood's THE DOOR could very well have been subtitled UNSENTIMENTAL ELEGIES: the same clear-eyed, sometimes caustic observations that give her novels their energy and force are also everywhere apparent in this strong collection of short poems.

At times intensely personal, Atwood's poems seek to find a common thread of humanity in their narration of such every day tragedies as the death of a beloved cat, or the slow onset of her mother's senility. Always alive to the possibility that suffering can distort our humanity, render us blind and selfish, Atwood shows us that we must learn to be sentimental in only the best and highest sense of that word.

Altogether THE DOOR is a good solid collection that is perfectly in keeping with Atwood's masterful, often inspired fiction. Recommended.

I have read several of Margaret Atwood’s books and stories before, but I had not read her poetry. My loss. She writes beautiful, poignant, heartbreaking poems about life, death, war, and remembrance in a very approachable, grounded, and tactile style.

It's kind of pointless to write an Amazon review of one of the world's greatest living writers, but since I was prompted...yes. This is great. Buy it, savor it, then read it again.
I can't say enough good things about Ms Atwood's writing style: Wordsmith, Poet, Novelist, Short story, Essayist; she handles all genres with a simple elegance that seems effortless (the best often do), while appearing almost conversational so that the reader is always engaged.
