Abstract Where have all the Lady Macbeths gone? wondered Margaret Atwood. Her answer came in the form of Zienia, the predatory protagonist of The Robber Bride. In this interview, Canada's preeminent novelist, poet, and critic discusses topics such as how she became a writer and how the women's movement, World War II, and her home city of Toronto have influenced her writing. Excerpts from The Robber Bride-her witty recasting of the Grimms' tale "The Robber Bridegroom"-and Cat's Eye, read by actress Nadia Cameron, showcase the incisive and poetic nature of Atwood's prose.
