Abstract/Description: Much has been written about the effectiveness of speculative fiction, especiallyutopian works. In this thesis I will examine the source of fear in Margaret Artwood’sworks The Handmaid’s Tale and Oryx and Crake using Sigmund Freud’s “The Uncanny”to illustrate the terror of doubles as they appear in the novels. The terror in TheHandmaid’s Tale comes from the descriptions of distorted physical environments, whilethe horror in Oryx and Crake emanates from the familiar yet twisted animals andcharacters found inside the corporate compounds. Through the recognition of thesedoubles as uncanny, Atwood’s work moves readers to cognition and social action.
