27January14 — And I say dystopia, too.
There and here and everywhere, I like to play with words, but here, on this page, I will be writing about dystopian literature, with cross-references to book reviews of books that fit this category.
Some things I am thinking about, roughly in this order —
- Margaret Atwood’s definition of speculative fiction and science fiction, with a meditation on my blinds spots.
- Comparing and contrasting dystopian literature, prophetic literature, and speculative fiction.
- Adding to the mixture the ideas of global warming and climate change.
- Why dystopian literature grabs me.
