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 :

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.

Seminar paper from the year 2001 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7 (A-), http: //www.uni-jena.de/ (Institute for Anglistics/American Studies), course: Aspects of the 'Crime Novel' in Canada and Austalia, 7 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: With her recent novel Alias Grace Margaret Atwood has turned to the field of historical writing. In her novel which is set in 19th century Canada the female protagonist Grace Marks is a convicted murderess who is accused of having killed her master Thomas Kinnear and his mistress, another servant of the house, Nancy Montgomery. At the time Grace was sentenced to death and it was only her claimed madness that saved her from the gallows. When Simon Jordan decides he wants to study Grace's case and cure her from her amnesia, Grace tells him her life story and also the event of the crime is again being brought up, though Grace cannot remember the crime scene itself or having committed the crime. Even though a murder has been committed as one can expect in a crime novel and we can only but assume that Grace has had some part in it, the crime is not the focus of the novel, but rather Grace's story and what we as readers make of it. The novel goes to explore Grace's life, her story telling and therewith her personality. It is left to the reader to decide whether or not he believes Grace story and accepts her as being innocent. In what way this quest for the truth goes with the notion of a crime novel, shall be investigated in this paper

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.

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 :

1859. Grace Marks, condamnée à perpétuité, tourne lentement en rond dans la cour d'un pénitencier canadien. A l'âge de seize ans, elle a été accusée de deux meurtres horribles. Personne n'a jamais su si elle était coupable, innocente ou folle. Lors de son procès, après avoir donné trois versions des faits, elle s'est murée dans le silence : amnésie ou dissimulation ? Le docteur Simon Jordan, jeune et prometteur spécialiste de la maladie mentale, veut découvrir la vérité. Il obtient l'autorisation de rencontrer Grace, de la faire longuement parler... Avec lui, la prisonnière va dévider le terrible fuseau de ses souvenirs : son enfance irlandaise, l'agonie de sa mère sur le bateau qui les emmène au Canada, ses emplois de domestique, la mort de sa seule amie... A écouter ce récit, Grace ne semble ni démente ni criminelle, et pourtant, que sont ces troublants rêves qu'elle cache à Jordan : cauchemars, hallucinations ou réminiscences d'actes monstrueux ? Inspiré d'un fait divers sanglant qui a bouleversé le Canada au XIXe siècle, Captive plonge le lecteur dans un fascinant mystère, oscillant sans cesse entre vérité et mensonge. Après l'adaptation de La Servante écarlate pour le petit écran, unanimement saluée par la critique, ce roman est lui aussi devenu une série TV, sous le titre Alias Grace, avec Sarah Gadon, Zachary Levi et Anna Paquin au casting.
