Several times I have referred to Iris's memoir as her way of negotiating with the
dead, and it is to Atwood's recent book, Negotiating with the Dead: A Writer on
Writing (2002) that I now wish to turn, as the narrative layers around The Blind
Assassin continue to proliferate.” That book developed out of Atwood's Empson
Lectures delivered at Cambridge in early 2000, some months before the
publication of The Blind Assassin, and those lectures shadowily prefigure many
of the topics in the ...

Striking an Atwoodian chord, we might say that such writers show us how to “
negotiate with the dead": how to be creative within a tradition without undue
violence to the self or the community of selves.“ Declining thus the sharp
dichotomy between strong versus weak poet allows for a different understanding
of what counts as strength in poiesis. In any case, by writing and reading, poets
give us nourishing resources, in life and literature, for a richer self-understanding
and renewal.

Or so it seems” (Negotiating 148). Speculating that writing is “motivated, deep
down, by a fear of and a fascination with mortality,” Atwood insists that what
survives in writing is a voice telling a story (Negotiating 156). Learning from the
dead—from writers that preceded them and from their ancestors—writers must “
negotiate with the dead”: All writers must go from now to once upon a time; all
must go from here to there; all must descend to where the stories are kept; all
must take care not ...

One brief digression in Atwood's book Negotiating with the Dead: A Writer on
Writing is particularly revealing about Atwood's writing technique and, indeed,
about why her work is so wildly appealing to audiences. Within a larger
discussion of the way art has been perceived and valued through the ages, and a
more focused discussion of censorship in the twentieth century, she interjects a
few comments on what the atmosphere of the late 1 950s was really like — from
the point of view ...

A number of books on writing have been written in a spirit like this one, and I
recommend them for further reading. Stephen King's On Writing: A Memoir of the
Craft (New York: Scribner, 2000) is a lively, compassionate, but hardheaded
account of the writer's life. Margaret Atwood's Negotiating with the Dead: A Writer
on Writing (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2002) includes unique
insights on the writer's world, as does John Gardner's classic On Becoming a
Novelist (New ...
