Summary

Adaptación al cómic del clásico moderno de Margaret Atwood título que recrea vívidamente la República de Gilead como nunca se ha hecho antes.

Esta impresionante novela gráfica, adaptación del clásico moderno de Margaret Atwood del mismo título, recrea vívidamente la terrorífica realidad de la opresiva República de Gilead como nunca se ha hecho antes. Su protagonista, Defred, ha perdido su dinero, empleo y nombre, y ahora es una criada en Gilead, donde no se permite a las mujeres tener un trabajo autónomo, leer o entablar amistades. Bajo el nuevo régimen social, su único valor es ser una mujer fértil, y su único cometido es entregar su cuerpo una vez al mes a su amo, el «comandante», para ser fecundada. Provocativo, alarmante y profético en muchos sentidos, El cuento de la criada se ha convertido en un fenómeno global.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION


Everything Handmaids wear is red: the colour of blood, which defines us.
 
Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead, where women are prohibited from holding jobs, reading, and forming friendships. She serves in the household of the Commander and his wife, and under the new social order she has only one purpose: once a month, she must lie on her back and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if they are fertile. But Offred remembers the years before Gilead, when she was an independent woman who had a job, a family, and a name of her own. Now, her memories and her will to survive are acts of rebellion.

Provocative, startling, prophetic, The Handmaid’s Tale has long been a global phenomenon. With this stunning graphic novel adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s modern classic, beautifully realized by artist Renée Nault, the terrifying reality of Gilead has been brought to vivid life like never before.Age Range: Adult
