Write a note on Atwood and Ondaatje’s contribution to Canadian Poetry.

Atwood is as good a poet as she is a writer of novels. Her books of poetry include :

The Animals in that Country (1968)

Procedures from Underground (1 970)

Power Politics (1 97 1)

Two Headed Poems (1 978)

and a few others. Selected Poems appeared in 1976. She has edited The Oxford Book of Canadian Poetry. Her well-known novel is Surfacing. She writes in a stark style. The point-of-view is often that of an alienated individual. There is often a disturbance of the everyday world. She finds it a place of deceptive appearances.
