Topic Proposal Blog Post...
What is the guiding question for your analysis of the text? In other words, what about this text confuses you? What do you want to learn more about?
I chose to research cults and how they relate to The Handmaid's Tale. I would like to learn more about the different cults and the different beliefs they may have. I think the men in The Handmaid's Tale are cult like and they act as the leaders of this so called cult.
What topic do you plan to research that will help you answer your guiding question?
I plan on researching the different cults and their beliefs. I would like to compare to see how they relate to the story. Why did you choose this topic? How will it help you better understand Atwood?
I chose this topic because there are so many possibilities. I think I will also have more information available for my research. I think it might help me better understand Atwoods thinking when she wrote The Handmaid's Tale.
I found an interesting bio of Margaret Atwood at : http://www.notablebiographies.com/An-Ba/Atwood-Margaret.html
I got my images from: http://jerirosenberger.wordpress.com/2011/02/21/its-gettin-scary-out-there/ , http://scooterchronicles.com/2008/08/11/the-handmaids-tale-by-margaret-atwood/ and http://recycledminds.blogspot.com/2011/02/handmaids-reminder.html
