This article offers an analysis of feminist revision of myth, language and spirituality in two recent poetry collections by Margaret Atwood,Interlunar and Morning in the Burned House. An examination of theoretical and critical feminist concerns regarding women's writing and matters pertaining to mythology and revision of myth precedes a reading of a selection of poems from the two collections. The article argues that it is crucial for the understanding of Atwood's feminist vision that these concerns be taken into consideration by critics and readers.
