This poem is a depressing and frightening story of one’s life living in a rented home with a extremely mean landlady, Atwood has made the landlady as a woman who doesn’t have any sensibility or any sensitivity in her heart. Even though the tenant is living free in a rented room she she feels imprisoned by the landlady it comes to a point where the tenant sees the landlady in her dreams enough times to make their peaceful dreams into a nightmare.
