I'm not sure it will be of much importance, 3 months later, but to answer
the question posed by "Sarah from Canada" the poem was published in 1971
according to one of my Literature anthologies.

This particular poem by Anne Sexton shows the gullibility of women and the
unrealistic dream we all have about meeting the perfect man and leading the
perfect life. It opens our eyes to the fact that this fairy tale never
happens in real life unless it is the million-dollar jackpot winner from
rags to riches and that still doesn't let you have the perfect life. It
also opens our hearts to Cinderella, not just about her past in a
non-loving family, but it makes us feel sympathy for her in her new life.

I thought that the poem in general was quite interesting, but what caught
my eye was the last paragraph of the poem. In real life there is no
happily ever after life. Great comparison of two dolls in a museum case
never bothered by diapers or dust, never arguing over the timing of an egg,
never telling the story twice, never getting a middle-aged spread, their
darling smiles pasted on for eternity. Fabulous, comparison, I couldn't
think of any better way of pointing out their lives. It also sounds so sad
and unhappy life if I was in their shoes.

Anne Sexton is one of the greatest writers of all time. As she was severly
abused by her parents and suffered from severe postpartum depression, she
turned to poetry as a means to cope with her challenges. I think she really
represents a view that many women refuse to take, being realistic. She has
taken lit from other greats and transformed it in her own imaginatively
critical manner. She is by far one of the most sincere, and realistic
writers of feministic lit! and hopefully women will think twice about their
"happily ever afters"

It's another life lesson. All we judge as being right or wrong is so often
based on the way it's presented. This poem should be read every decade so
that you can see how your personal perspective changes. Like all great art,
it conveys something different in each stage of your life.
