  • This article considers Margaret Atwood's Notes Towards A Poem That Can Never Be Written, poems concerned with torture as a human rights violation. It weighs Atwood's appropriation of the suffering of a colonized subject position, with the ethical imperative not to be silent, and hence complicit with existing regimes of power.
