  Resolved Question: What is Margaret Atwood
Is the family on the rocks a portrayal of American tourists? The poet would like tourists to see her country's mountains and lakes, rather than the unrealistic commercial view some Americans portray (of Canada)? Did the publishing of this poem weaken the Americans ties with Canadians? Just a couple of questions I had after reading the poem. Canadians also have stereotypes on Americans, right?

  Resolved Question: Please help me interpret
Postcards by Margaret Atwood I'm thinking about you. What else can I say? The palm trees on the reverse are a delusion; so is the pink sand. What we have are the usual fractured coke bottles and the smell of backed-up drains, too sweet, like a mango on the verge of rot, which we have also. The air clear sweat, mosquitoes & their tracks; birds & elusive. Time comes in waves here, a sickness, one day after the other rolling on; I move up, it's called awake, then down into the uneasy nights but never forward. The roosters crow for hours before dawn, and a prodded child howls & howls on the pocked road to school. In the hold with the baggage there are two prisoners, their heads shaved by bayonets, & ten crates of queasy chicks. Each spring there's race of cripples, from the store to the church. This is the sort of junk I carry with me; and a clipping about democracy from the local paper. Outside the window they're building the damn hotel, nail by nail, someone's crumbling dream. A universe that includes you can't be all bad, but does it? At this distance you're a mirage, a glossy image fixed in the posture of the last time I saw you. Turn you over, there's the place for the address. Wish you were here. Love comes in waves like the ocean, a sickness which goes on & on, a hollow cave in the head, filling & pounding, a kicked ear. I love this poem. I'm going to write my poetry assessment commentary on it, but I have a few questions... In the last two lines of the first stanza, what does "The air clear sweat, mosquitoes & their tracks; birds & elusive" mean? And why does Atwood use & signs instead of the actual word "and"? In the second stanza, I don't understand the whole "In the hold with the baggage there are two prisoners, their heads shaved by bayonets, & ten crates of queasy chicks. Each spring there's a race of cripples, from the store to the church" part.... And lastly, in the third stanza, what does the hotel represent? Thank you ^^
