Nature as a Heuristic Presence: An Ecofeminist Reading of Margaret Atwood’s Surfacing
Margaret Atwood is an acclaimed Canadian writer who always dealt with women related issues in her writings. This paper attempts to make an ecofeministic reading of her brilliantly crafted novel Surfacing. There is an invisible and intangible parallel between the marginalization of women and the exploitation of nature under the stipulations of the anthropocentric world. The novel vividly portrays how the protagonist identifies herself with the Canadian wilderness and thereby draws sustenance from it.
