To view the world through the eye of a cat!
“Why do we remember the past, and not the future?”, wonders Stephen W. Hawking in “A Brief History of Time”. This seems to be the question that constantly echoes behind Atwood’s writing in “Cat’s Eye”, and the axis around which the novel revolves. In attempting to present her own interpretation of “time”, Atwood simply achieves to prove that “nothing goes away”, as time is a multi-dimensional shape which exists only in our minds, enabling us to travel around dimensions and be a different person in each one.“Cat’s Eye” presents the retrospective of Elaine Risley, a middle-aged acclaimed artist who discovers that she cannot move into the future as she is still trapped in the past, because of the childhood trauma caused by Cordelia, Elaine’s tormentor and soul-mate. Elaine was so deeply scarred by the sinister girly “power-games” of her childhood years that she lost herself, her memories, and “became” a cat’s eye: cool as cold marble, detached, and almost devoid of feeling.
