The Handmaidś Tale

In the Handmaid’s Tale, there are two distinct ending chapters: One where our narrator Offred finishes her story with quick, uncertain questions about what’s next for her … and a seperate finale that gives a less direct but more assured view of the future.

For a final essay on The Handmaid’s Tale, please write a thoughtful, coherent, and well-sourced essay about the final two chapters of the novel and a) if you consider them acceptable and strong endings, in a general sense, to the story we’ve been reading, b) tell how they connect to the book’s big ideas and themes and, c) state and explain if they are emotionally and artistically satisfying to you personally. Finally, write a fourth body paragraph about the fact that Ms. Atwood has announced she’ll be releasing a sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, called The Testaments, later this year; does the announcement of a sequel nearly 34 years after the book’s first publication make you enthusiastic, or does it feel unnecessary and tired at this point
