    For example, bioengineering is a major subject in Oryx and Crake, specifically gene-splicing. Atwood takes real animals that exist today and creates non-existent animals by mixing two animals and creating new species. Although the idea is very real and this type of science does exist in bioengineering, the reality of it is that there is no such thing in our world today. A good example from the novel is a “rakunk” (a cross between a skunk and a racoon), which is an imaginary species described in…

He explains, “To appreciate children as gifts is to accept them as they come, not as objects of our design, or products of our will, or instrument of our ambition,” (45).
