Lady Oracle Overview

Lady Oracle is written by Margaret Atwood, a prolific award-winning writer. Lady Oracle’s protagonist, Joan Foster, is a Canadian writer who becomes famous overnight after publishing a book of poems. She is also a published author under another identity: Louisa K. Delacourt. With this identity she publishes historical fantasy Costume Gothic novels. Throughout Lady Oracle, Joan struggles to define herself through her writing, and perceptions other people have of her but she is the most herself and the most honest in her telling of her narrative; the voice that the reader hears. Likewise, she is attracted to men who also have a metaphorical double-self: her husband Arthur, the Royal Porcupine, and Paul, the Polish Count.
