- This article analyzes the aspects of feminine corporeality in the dystopia "The Handmaid's Tale" by the Canadian writer M. Atwood, in which the appeal to violence over the body allows the author to create a convincing picture of the suppression of the individual in a totalitarian society and to show at the same time the importance of bodily principle in the restoration of the lost spiritual integrity. The author seeks to show that the logic of physicality is that determines not only the problematic peculiarities, but also the artistic originality of Atwood's novel.
