Please summarize Margaret Atwood's The Journals of Susanna Moodie.
Margaret Atwood's The Journals of Susanna Moodie (1970), is a poem cycle based on Susanna Strickland Moodie's (1852), a non-fiction work about Moodie’s experience as immigrant and pioneer in the Canadian wilderness. Atwood’s collection of poems are a series of snapshots of Moodie’s relationship to the Canadian landscape, moving from initial fear and distaste to acceptance. Initially, as Moodie lands in Quebec, Atwood describes her as perceiving the land as dark and hostile. The forest is regarded as hostile and she is portrayed as’ like her husband, attempting to carve out a space of light in taming and clearing the forest. By the end of the poem sequence, Moodie has accepted and become a part of the land.
