Overview

El cuento de la criada narra la vida en el estado distópico de Gilead, una comunidad totalitaria en lo que antes era Estados Unidos. Gilead está gobernado por fundamentalistas que hacen uso de opresión militarizada para "volver a los valores tradicionales" mientras se encuentran al borde de un desastre ambiental y una tasa de natalidad desplomada. Siendo una de las pocas mujeres que todavía son fértiles, Defred es una Criada en la casa del Comandante y pertenece a esa casta de mujer forzada a la servidumbre sexual como último y desesperado recurso para repoblar el mundo. En esta sociedad temible, Defred deberá perdurar para encontrar a la hija que el gobierno le arrebató.
