I'm using the following Margaret Atwood quote as an opener for my PG dissertation on Mysticism. I need to know the exact reference citation to put into my bibliography, which would include if not the page and chapter number, at least the book/work from which the quote is taken.
The quote is as follows:
"I am the horizon you ride towards, the thing you can never lasso I am also what surrounds you: my brain scattered with your tin cans, bones, empty shells, the litter of your invasions. I am the space you desecrate as you pass through." -- Margaret Atwood.
Thank you in advance.
- much love, light and laughter, Ananya.
Scatter joy ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson. ~*Blowing out someone else's candle doesn't make your's burn any brighter.*~ We can't all be stars, but we can all twinkle. We may not have it all together, but together we have it all.
I think this is from her Selected Poems 1965-1975, first published I believe in 1976, and I think there was a further volume published at a later date. I can't be specific so hope this helps. Good luck with it. I don't know from which poem it comes from.
Just found this as I went off to do some more digging, but I am unsure if this will help you any further.
