If you're writing about the future and you aren't doing forecast journalism, you'll probably be writing something people will call either science fiction or speculative fiction. I like to make a distinction between science fiction proper and speculative fiction. For me, the science fiction label belongs on books with things in them that we can't yet do, such as going through a wormhole in space to another universe; and speculative fiction means a work that employs the means already to hand, such as DNA identification and credit cards, and that takes place on Planet Earth. But the terms are fluid. Some use speculative fiction as an umbrella covering science fiction and all its hyphenated forms–science fiction fantasy, and so forth–and others choose the reverse... I have written two works of science fiction or, if you prefer, speculative fiction: The Handmaid's Tale and Oryx and Crake. Here are some of the things these kinds of narratives can do that socially realistic novels cannot do. window.modules["852"] = [function(require,module,exports){function baseSortBy(r,e){var o=r.length;for(r.sort(e);o--;)r[o]=r[o].value;return r}module.exports=baseSortBy;

Crabtree based the Aunts’ uniforms off of a sketch she made while at the Duomo in Milan when she saw a priest walk by. “I wanted that kind of stance for the Aunts — that kind of authority,” said Crabtree. She used a heavy-duty wool in an olive-brown color to construct their uniforms, because she wanted to convey that they were still powerful women in Gilead. “The best colors for that was this World War I British military brownish-green,” she said. She mashed that up with another unlikely reference: the hit TV ’70s show Maude starring Bea Arthur. “They wore these really long-ass vests that went over turtlenecks. If you look at the Aunts, when they’re wearing turtlenecks, it’s basically Maude, only with sleeves.” makes her uneasy, but his proposition is too risky—she could be

• Visit us on youtube I said last year it's almost like [the writers] have a deal with the devil, and I hate saying that! But they write it seven months in advance, and it’s like, how could they possibly know what is going to come out in the news seven months in advance? But unfortunately, politics and political movements are cyclical, and these themes of oppression are recurring. I don’t know if it’s because the writers, like Margaret [Atwood], are pulling ideas from the past, and they're coming back up just because that's unfortunately how life evolves. We still can’t seem to figure out how to treat each other, unfortunately.

Of course, McCarthy sounds terribly naive to our weary ears, worn down by every hair-raising remark from our president and a rapid-fire succession of this-can't-possibly-be-happening headlines. Granted, The Handmaid’s Tale and its television adaptation are two different beasts. But one thing is true: The Handmaid’s Tale is very capable of terrifying, especially since writers cleverly incorporate modern references, like Uber and Tinder, to further situate The Handmaid’s Tale in the present.

World Much of the discussion about The Handmaid's Tale has centered on its categorization as feminist literature. Atwood does not see the Republic of Gilead as a purely feminist dystopia, as not all men have greater rights than women. [14] Instead, this society presents a typical dictatorship: "shaped like a pyramid, with the powerful of both sexes at the apex, the men generally outranking the women at the same level; then descending levels of power and status with men and women in each, all the way down to the bottom, where the unmarried men must serve in the ranks before being awarded an Econowife". [14] Econowives are women married to men that don't belong to the elite and who are expected to carry out child-bearing, domestic duties, and traditional companionship. When asked about whether her book was feminist, Atwood stated that the presence of women and what happens to them are important to the structure and theme of the book. This aisle of feminism, by default, would make a lot of books feminist. However, she was adamant in her stance that her book did not represent the brand of feminism that victimizes or strips women of moral choice. [47] Additionally, Atwood has argued that while some of the observations that informed the content of The Handmaid's Tale may be feminist, her novel is not meant to say "one thing to one person" or serve as a political message—instead, The Handmaid's Tale is "a study of power, and how it operates and how it deforms or shapes the people who are living within that kind of regime". [11] [12]

false Elsewhere in the episode, we see the arrest of Serena Joy just after she started to flex her freedoms in Canada. So much for being there for "your daughter" Serena. The charges stem from her ordering June and Nick to have sex which, if you recall, began as a forced relationship before turning into something mutual and loving.

Sherlock Holmes • Needless to say, this is an absolutely awful situation. From the very beginning, I knew how much I was going to like this book. Its story isn’t one that it is simply read: it demands to be heard. It beckoned me to see the full force of the situation. The Handmaids, the average woman, have no free will or individualism; they are treated as simple baby producing machines. An oppressive regime is forced upon them, and to deviate from the said standard results in a slow and agonising death. There’s no hope or joy for them, only perpetual subjugation.

Although Marthas are tasked with doing most of the work to support the households of Gilead's upper class, they're clearly meant to get their work done in the background and essentially make the lives of the upper class more comfortable without being seen or heard. And that is very clear when it comes to their costume design as well. In the books, the Marthas were supposed to wear green, but the bland gray of their clothing in the series forces them to almost literally fade into the background. Ironically, it seems like their invisibility is what made them the most dangerous too, they could do something like sneaking out dozens of Gilead's children simply because no one was looking at them. 1 Darkness Denotes Power


Offred details her life starting with her third assignment as a Handmaid to a Commander. Interspersed with her narratives of her present-day experiences are flashbacks of her life before and during the beginning of the revolution, when she finds she has lost all autonomy to her husband, their failed attempt to escape to Canada, her indoctrination into life as a Handmaid by the government-trained Aunts, and the successful escape of her friend Moira. At her new home, she is treated poorly by a woman called Serena Joy, the Commander's wife and a former Christian media personality, who supported women's domesticity and subordinate role well before Gilead was established. To Offred's surprise, the Commander requests to see her outside of the "Ceremony", a sexual ritual obligatory for handmaids and intended to result in conception in the presence of his wife. The two begin an illegal relationship where they play Scrabble and Offred is allowed to ask favours of him, whether in terms of information or material items. Finally, he gives her lingerie and takes her to a government-run brothel called Jezebel's meant to add variety to men's sex lives, which (as claimed by the Commander) is necessary. Offred unexpectedly encounters Moira there, with her will broken, and she learns that those who are found breaking the law are sent to the Colonies to clean up toxic waste or are allowed to work at Jezebel's as punishment.

Historic This season’s climax proved more logically sound than the last, though I was still a little disappointed by it. There was room for some really interesting twists and turns in the plane plot, but instead the decoy boiled down to ‘I’ll throw rocks and you run in the opposite direction’. This is where Breaking Bad comparisons don’t favour The Handmaid’s Tale. Its dialogue, character work and cinematography are excellent, but it often feels like it doesn’t quite know how to stage a thrilling set-piece.
