The Handmaid’s Tale, Part 2: Crash Course Literature 404

This week, John Green continues to teach you about Margaret Atwood’s speculative fiction, The Handmaid’s Tale.

In this installment, we’re looking at Atwood’s desire to tell a story from a female point of view, and what exactly it means to tell a story in that way, and if in fact there is an inherently male or female way to tell a story.

We’ll also look at why Atwood presents the story’s final chapter from the perspective of a male scholar.
