In Alias Grace, the bestselling author of The Handmaid's Tale takes readers into the life of one of the most notorious women of the nineteenth century—recently adapted into a 6-part Netflix original mini-series by director Mary Harron and writer/actress Sarah Polley. It's 1843, and Grace Marks has been convicted for her involvement in the vicious murders of her employer and his housekeeper and mistress. Some believe Grace is innocent; others think her evil or insane. Now serving a life sentence, Grace claims to have no memory of the murders. An up-and-coming expert in the burgeoning field of mental illness is engaged by a group of reformers and spiritualists who seek a pardon for Grace. He listens to her story while bringing her closer and closer to the day she cannot remember. What will he find in attempting to unlock her memories? Captivating and disturbing, Alias Grace showcases bestselling, Booker Prize-winning author Margaret Atwood at the peak of her powers.

Book Description :

Margaret Atwood's novel Alias Grace is based on the murder of Thomas Kinnear and his mistress Nancy Montgomery in 1843. Kinnear's manservant was hung for the crime, but the execution of his supposed accomplice Grace Marks, owing to her "feeble sex" and "extreme youth," was commuted to life. The entire event excited widespread interest although few agreed that justice had been served. Some denounced Grace as a cunning demon, others considered her a terrorized victim of circumstance and pleaded for mercy. These opinions were influenced by various political and religious agendas of the day as well as by Victorian views on gender, class and justice. Little concrete evidence was identified, and journalists contradicted one and other. Everyone who ever set pen to paper on the subject of Grace seems to have been intensely subjective. In In Search of Alias Grace, Margaret Atwood describes her own search for the facts, what she found out, what eluded her grasp and how this process shaped her novel.

Book Description :

Essay from the year 2019 in the subject Communications - Movies and Television, grade: 1,7, , course: Gender in Film and the Visual Arts, language: English, abstract: The ambiguity of Grace herself is especially interesting about this series. Therefore, my attempt is to first analyze the narrative style, especially concerning the different timelines as well as Grace’s unreliability and ambiguity as a character and narrator. Furthermore, I will connect this way of narrating to Grace’s quilting which is omnipresent in the series and can be read as another form of communication and narration especially for women at a time where they usually had to stay silent. With a rather powerful voice-over begins the telling of Grace Marks, by that time a 33-year-old maid that was convicted of murdering her former employer Thomas Kinnear and his house keeper Nancy Montgomery together with the stable boy James McDermott. While he gets hanged, Grace is sentenced to life imprisonment. Now, 15 years after her conviction, psychologist Dr. Simon Jordan is hired to talk to Grace to find out if she really was guilty of the murders or not. These are true events that took once place in 1843 and then were adopted for a novel written by Margaret Atwood: Alias Grace. Based on this novel the canadian US-American Drama-mini-series Alias Grace, written by Margaret Atwood and Sarah Polley and directed by Mary Harron, was released in 2017. It is the story of Grace Marks, the question of her innocence and guilt, that is constantly being asked by Dr. Jordan as well as the audience.

Book Description :

Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject Literature - Canada, grade: 2,0, , language: English, abstract: The aim of this term paper is to exemplify the central key features in Postmodernism and to analyse in how far Margaret Atwood manages to make use of them in her novel "Alias Grace". Besides, I will concentrate on Atwood’s strategies to integrate the postmodern features into the novel and to illustrate them to the reader. The first part of the term paper will be concerned with a general overview of Genette’s categories of discourse-oriented Narratology and the postmodern features Fragmentation, Subjectivity, Indeterminacy and Alienation. More precisely, I will define these features and will concentrate on the most important characteristics which can be linked to the novel. I will mention Genette’s Narrative Theory because it is especially important when dealing with Fragmentation. The second part will be concerned with these postmodern features with reference to "Alias Grace". Concerning Fragmentation, I am going to illustrate the interchanging narratives in the novel. When dealing with Subjectivity, I will analyse in how far different narratives of the story are subjective. By pointing out several passages in which open questions remain and the reader has to interpret on his own, I will discuss Indeterminacy. After doing so, I am going to point out in how far Fragmentation, Subjectivity and Indeterminacy lead to an Alienation of the reader. At the end of the term paper, a conclusion will be drawn in which one can see in how far Atwood uses postmodern elements in her novel.

Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

This study examines the use of the fairy tale intertext in contemporary Canadian women's fiction. In using specific fairy tale plots, themes, motifs, and/or characters within their works of fiction, women writers of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries purposefully express their goal for the revival and continuity of the female narrative voice and sense of agency. To explore the fairy tale-fiction relationship, Margaret Atwood's Alias Grace and Anne Hébert's Kamouraska are approached from what fairy tale scholar Jack Zipes has constructed as the theory of contamination of the fairy tale genre. The fairy tale genre's integration into contemporary fiction represents an important development where fairy tale narratives are critically reread so as to bring out deeper meanings for the contemporary audience.

Excerpt: The Handmaid's Tale is a dystopian novel, a work of science fiction or speculative fiction, written by Canadian author Margaret Atwood and first published by McClelland and Stewart in 1985. Set in the near future, in a totalitarian Christian theocracy which has overthrown the United States government, The Handmaid's Tale explores themes of women in subjugation and the various means by which they gain agency. The novel's title was inspired by Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales, which is a series of connected stories ("The Merchant's Tale," "The Parson's Tale," etc.). The Handmaid's Tale won the 1985 Governor General's Award and the first Arthur C. Clarke Award in 1987, and it was nominated for the 1986 Nebula Award, the 1986 Booker Prize, and the 1987 Prometheus Award. It has been adapted for the cinema, radio, opera, and stage. The Handmaid's Tale is set in the near future in the Republic of Gilead, a country formed within the borders of what was formerly the United States of America. It was founded by a racist, homophobic, christian, nativist, theocratic-organized military coup as an ideologically driven response to the pervasive ecological, physical and social degradation of the country. Beginning with a staged terrorist attack (blamed on Islamic extremist terrorists) that kills the President and most of Congress, a movement calling itself the "Sons of Jacob" launches a revolution and suspends the United States Constitution under the pretext of restoring order. Taking advantage of electronic banking, they were quickly able to freeze...
