Anne Sexton reveals the power of poetry in this piece.She is tired of being
limited by gender and would rather enter into a world where gender is put
to death. A world where she is haemaphrodite. A world where Adam is on one
side of her and Eve on the other.A world of poetry.

i think that this poem is one of my favorites from sexton that i have read
yet. it portrays very well the frustration she is now known for having felt
with women's oppression in the pre-feminism american society; but it can
easily apply to current feminist issues as well. i love the message that
she sends, and in such ironic but beautifully chosen words.
