Siren Song

Siren Song

by Margaret Atwood

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

(3) Base Camp

"Siren Song" sounds pretty simple, once we understand what a Siren is and what they usually do. So, if we have a little background in The Odyssey or Greek myths, the poem makes perfect sense. The walk is made even smoother since Atwood has updated everything for us with a modern, easy-flowing, conversational tone.
