The Circle Game

By Atwood, Margaret

Atwood's first collection of poetry made quite an impact. Containing many of her best and most famous poems, Atwood writes in her well-loved style; witty, vulnerable, compassionate, and sometimes quite cutting.

The Circle Game won the 1966 Governor General's Award for Poetry.
