The Handmaids Tale Studying, simplified. Video

The Handmaid's Tale - SNL The Handmaids Tale

After their initial sexual encounter, Offred and Nick begin to meet on their own initiative as well, with Offred discovering that she enjoys these intimate moments despite memories of her husband, and shares potentially dangerous information about her past with him.

However, shortly after, Ofglen disappears reported as a suicide , and Serena finds evidence of the relationship between Offred and the Commander, which causes Offred to contemplate suicide.

Offred tells Nick that she thinks she is pregnant. Shortly afterward, men arrive at the house wearing the uniform of the secret police, the Eyes of God, known informally as "the Eyes", to take her away.

As she is led to a waiting van, Nick tells her to trust him and go with the men. It is unclear whether the men are actually Eyes or members of the Mayday resistance.

Offred is still unsure if Nick is a member of Mayday or an Eye posing as one, and does not know if leaving will result in her escape or her capture.

Ultimately, she enters the van with her future uncertain. The novel concludes with a metafictional epilogue , described as a partial transcript of an international historical association conference taking place in the year The keynote speaker explains that Offred's account of the events of the novel was recorded onto cassette tapes later found and transcribed by historians studying what is then called "the Gilead Period.

Fitting with her statements that The Handmaid's Tale is a work of speculative fiction, not science fiction, Atwood's novel offers a satirical view of various social, political, and religious trends of the United States in the s.

So all of those things are real, and therefore the amount of pure invention is close to nil. Atwood's inspiration for the Republic of Gilead came from her study of early American Puritans while at Harvard, which she attended on a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship.

Atwood, with respect to those leading Gilead, further stated: [16]. I don't consider these people to be Christians because they do not have at the core of their behavior and ideologies what I, in my feeble Canadian way, would consider to be the core of Christianity … and that would be not only love your neighbors but love your enemies.

That would also be 'I was sick and you visited me not' and such and such …And that would include also concern for the environment, because you can't love your neighbor or even your enemy, unless you love your neighbor's oxygen, food, and water.

You can't love your neighbor or your enemy if you're presuming policies that are going to cause those people to die.

So faith is a force for good particularly when people are feeling beleaguered and in need of hope. So you can have bad iterations and you can also have the iteration in which people have got too much power and then start abusing it.

But that is human behavior, so you can't lay it down to religion. You can find the same in any power situation, such as politics or ideologies that purport to be atheist.

Need I mention the former Soviet Union? So it is not a question of religion making people behave badly.

It is a question of human beings getting power and then wanting more of it. In the same vein, Atwood also declared that "In the real world today, some religious groups are leading movements for the protection of vulnerable groups, including women.

In her interviews, Atwood offers up Afghanistan as an example of a religious theocracy forcing women out of the public sphere and into their homes, as in Gilead.

The Republic of Gilead struggles with infertility, making Offred's services as a Handmaid vital to producing children and thus reproducing the society.

Handmaids themselves are "untouchable", but their ability to signify status is equated to that of slaves or servants throughout history.

Atwood's strong stance on environmental issues and their negative consequences for our society has presented itself in other works such as her MaddAddam trilogy, and refers back to her growing up with biologists and her own scientific curiosity.

Offred is the protagonist and narrator who takes the readers through life in Gilead. She was labeled a "wanton woman" when Gilead was established because she had married a man who was divorced.

All divorces were nullified by the new government, meaning her husband was now considered still married to his first wife, making Offred an adulteress.

In trying to escape Gilead, she was separated from her husband and daughter. She is part of the first generation of Gilead's women, those who remember pre-Gilead times.

Proved fertile, she is considered an important commodity and has been placed as a "handmaid" in the home of "the Commander" and his wife Serena Joy, to bear a child for them Serena Joy is believed to be infertile.

Offred is a slave name that describes her function: she is "of Fred" i. In the novel, Offred says that she is not a concubine, but a tool; a "two legged womb".

The Handmaids' names say nothing about who the women really are; their only identity is as the Commander's property. In Atwood's original novel, Offred's real name is never revealed; however, Volker Schlöndorff 's film adaptation gave Offred the real name Kate, [20] while the television series gave her the real name June.

The women in training to be Handmaids whisper names across their beds at night. The names are "Alma. June," and all are later accounted for except June.

In addition, one of the Aunts tells the handmaids-in-training to stop "mooning and June-ing". As "Mayday" is the name of the Gilead resistance, June could be an invention by the protagonist.

The Nunavut conference covered in the epilogue takes place in June. The Commander says that he was a scientist and was previously involved in something similar to market research before Gilead's inception.

Later, it is hypothesized, but not confirmed, that he might have been one of the architects of the Republic and its laws. Presumably, his first name is "Fred", though that, too, may be a pseudonym.

He engages in forbidden intellectual pursuits with Offred, such as playing Scrabble , and introduces her to a secret club that serves as a brothel for high-ranking officers.

Offred learns that the Commander carried on a similar relationship with his previous handmaid, who later killed herself when his wife found out.

In the epilogue, Professor Peixoto speculates that one of two figures, both instrumental in the establishment of Gilead, may have been the Commander, based on the name "Fred".

It is his belief that the Commander was a man named Frederick R. Waterford who was killed in a purge shortly after Offred was taken away, charged with harbouring an enemy agent.

Serena Joy is a former televangelist and the Commander's wife in the fundamentalist theonomy. The state took away her power and public recognition, and tries to hide her past as a television figure.

Offred identifies Serena Joy by recalling seeing her on TV when she was a little girl early on Saturday mornings while waiting for the cartoons to air.

Believed to be sterile although the suggestion is made that the Commander is sterile, Gileadean laws attribute sterility only to women , she is forced to accept that he has use of a handmaid.

She resents having to take part in "The Ceremony", a monthly fertility ritual. She strikes a deal with Offred to arrange for her to have sex with Nick in order to become pregnant.

According to Professor Pieixoto in the epilogue, "Serena Joy" or "Pam" are pseudonyms; the character's real name is implied to be Thelma. Ofglen is a neighbour of Offred's and a fellow Handmaid.

She is partnered with Offred to do the daily shopping. Handmaids are never alone and are expected to police each other's behaviour.

Ofglen is a member of the Mayday resistance. In contrast to Offred, she is daring. She knocks out a Mayday spy who is to be tortured and killed in order to save him the pain of a violent death.

Offred is told that when Ofglen vanishes, it is because she has committed suicide before the government can take her into custody due to her membership in the resistance, possibly to avoid giving away any information.

A new handmaid, also called Ofglen, takes Ofglen's place, and is assigned as Offred's shopping partner. She threatens Offred against any thought of resistance.

In addition, she breaks protocol by telling her what happened to the first Ofglen. Nick is the Commander's chauffeur, who lives above the garage.

By Serena Joy's arrangement, he and Offred start a sexual relationship to increase her chance of getting pregnant.

If she were unable to bear the Commander a child, she would be declared sterile and shipped to the ecological wastelands of the Colonies. Offred begins to develop feelings for him.

Nick is an ambiguous character, and Offred does not know if he is a party loyalist or part of the resistance, though he identifies himself as the latter.

The epilogue suggests that he really was part of the resistance, and aided Offred in escaping the Commander's house. Moira has been a close friend of Offred's since college.

In the novel, their relationship represents a female friendship that the Republic of Gilead tries to block. A lesbian, she has resisted the homophobia of Gilead society.

Moira is taken to be a Handmaid soon after Offred. She escapes by stealing an Aunt's pass and clothes, but Offred later finds her working as a prostitute in a party-run brothel.

She was caught and chose the brothel rather than to be sent to the Colonies. Moira exemplifies defiance against Gilead by rejecting every value that is forced onto the citizens.

Luke was Offred's husband before the formation of Gilead, having divorced his first wife to marry her. Under Gilead, all divorces were retroactively nullified, resulting in Offred being considered an adulteress and their daughter illegitimate.

Offred was forced to become a Handmaid and her daughter was given to a loyalist family. Since their attempt to escape to Canada, Offred has heard nothing of Luke.

She wavers between believing him dead or imprisoned. Pieixoto is the "co-discoverer [with Professor Knotly Wade] of Offred's tapes".

In his presentation at an academic conference, he talks about "the 'Problems of Authentication in Reference to The Handmaid's Tale ' ".

The novel is set in an indeterminate dystopian future, speculated to be around the year , [24] with a fundamentalist theonomy ruling the territory of what had been the United States but is now the Republic of Gilead.

Individuals are segregated by categories and dressed according to their social functions. Complex dress codes play a key role in imposing social control within the new society and serve to distinguish people by sex, occupation, and caste.

The action takes place in what once was the Harvard Square neighbourhood of Cambridge, Massachusetts ; [25] [26] Atwood studied at Radcliffe College , located in this area.

In Gilead, the bodies of fertile women are politicized and controlled. The North American population is falling as more men and women become infertile though in Gilead, legally, it is only women who can be the cause of infertility.

Gilead's treatment of women is based upon a fundamentalist interpretation of the Bible, meaning that women are the property of and subordinate to their husband, father, or head of household.

They are not allowed to do anything that would grant them any power independent of this system. They are not allowed to vote, hold a job, read, possess money, or own anything, among many other restrictions.

Gilead is within you" HT 5. This describes that there is no way around the societal bounds of women in this new state of government.

Handmaids, being not allowed to wed, are given two-year assignments with a commander, and lose their own name: they are called "Of [their Commander's first name]", such as the novel's protagonist, known only as Offred.

When a handmaid is reassigned, her name changes with her. Their original identities are suppressed. However, while being re-educated as handmaids, they surreptitiously share their names with each other.

In this book, the government appears to be strong though "no one in Gilead seems to be a true believer in its revolution" Beauchamp.

The Commanders, portrayed via Commander Fred, do not agree with their own doctrines. The commander takes Offred at one point to a brothel in order to have sex with her in an informal setting apart from the Ceremony.

The wives, portrayed via Serena Joy, former television evangelist, disobey the rules set forth by their commander husbands.

Serena smokes black market cigarettes, expresses the forbidden idea that men may be infertile, and schemes to get Offred impregnated by her chauffeur.

Christian churches that do not support the actions of the Sons of Jacob are systematically demolished, and the people living in Gilead are never seen attending church.

Priests unwilling to convert are executed and hanged from the Wall. Atwood pits Quaker Christians against the regime by having them help the oppressed, something she feels they would do in reality: "The Quakers have gone underground, and are running an escape route to Canada, as—I suspect—they would.

Jews are named an exception and classified Sons of Jacob. Offred observes that Jews refusing to convert are allowed to emigrate from Gilead to Israel, and most choose to leave.

However, in the epilogue, Professor Pieixoto reveals that many of the emigrating Jews ended up being dumped into the sea while on the ships ostensibly tasked with transporting them to Israel, due to privatization of the "repatriation program" and capitalists' effort to maximize profits.

Offred mentions that many Jews who chose to stay were caught secretly practicing Judaism and executed. The division of labour among the women generates some resentment.

Marthas, Wives and Econowives perceive Handmaids as promiscuous and are taught to scorn them. Offred mourns that the women of the various groups have lost their ability to empathize with each other.

They are divided in their oppression. The ritual requires the Handmaid to lie on her back between the legs of the Wife during the sex act as if they were one person.

With her plan in place, June reaches the point of no return on her bold strike against Gilead; Serena Joy and Commander Waterford attempt to find their way forward in their new lives.

A return to Jezebels puts everything in jeopardy; Serena Joy and Commander Waterford take a clandestine trip. Serena Joy confronts Offred and the Commander.

In this country women are second-class citizens. Anyone trying to escape is punished. One such person is June, who is captured while trying to escape with her husband and child and is sentenced to be a handmaid, bearing children for childless government officials.

As a handmaid, June is renamed Offred. This is her story. Written by grantss. If you haven't seen it yet or haven't read the book let's try to set the scene without spoilers; Mankind is failing, most women are sterile because of industrial pollution or Mother Nature just having enough of us parasites.

Birth rates are plummeting. An ultra religious cult see it as their God given mission to 'save mankind'. They seize power by staging a fake terrorist attack against the US government, impose marshal law and set about rebuilding American society.

They use The Old Testament as their blue print, but with some totally wack interpretations and distortions. Fertile women become the property of the state.

Brain washed and farmed out to the new ruling elite as baby makers, slavery and subjugation is all they can hope for.

Margaret Atwood, Canadian hero, social commentator, environmentalist, activist, feminist, tech inventor, business woman and visionary always maintained that this isn't sci-fi, but 'speculative fiction', things that have a chance of happening in the near future.

Written in the '80's it's probably more profound now; the Neo Con Christian's have become a powerful force in US politics.

Could there be a Tea Party without the ultra religious Republicans? Probably not. Maybe it takes a next door neighbour from Canada to really see what's happening with the totally dysfunctional family next door?

It has always been a source of debate about how a country so entrenched in the ideas of freedom and liberal philosophy can also be the home of such obvious bigotry and divide?

Surely teaching Creationism instead of proved science in some State's schools is a warning sign? Maggie may well ridicule this dogmatic un-thinking, however it's far from funny when she points out the possible end game and consequences for society and women in particular.

The book, although heavy going at first, is one of those you can pick up every few years and just dive right in thanks to Una for making me read it back in ' I was worried that this TV adaption wouldn't do it justice.

How wrong I was. It's slightly different, and relies on a lot of flashbacks like the original narration; however this narration helps to smooth over the cracks nicely.

So it still sticks faithfully to the principles and main events of the story, albeit in a roundabout 'more up to date' way.

The subtle creep up and takeover of government and power has been well handled so far. I am enthralled, totally impressed and on tenterhooks with Bruce Miller's adaption.

The direction is also smart, the hanging scene seen from the back of a van was powerful stuff. Every image is a perfect composition, nothing is wasted, it's real art in the hands of skilled camera operators.

The feminism is subtle, not the clumsy and overt 'all men are bad, all women are good little victims' like of some of the more hardcore feminist literature.

Maggie recognises that some women can be bad too, and some men will die to do the right thing, as you will see.

Her book made a point that this could only happen if most women were willing parties too, and that a 2, year old book of moral tales can hold a massive amount of power when deliberately abused in the wrong hands.
