The handmaid's tale : notes
Part of the Cliffs Notes S. series
For every utopia, there's a corresponding dystopia.
This tale of a bleak future depicts a time where women are valued only for their reproductive capacities.
While the novel is horrifying, there are moments of poetic warmth and humor.
It is a brilliant satire.
