Analysis and comments on The Breast by Anne Sexton

Comment 2 of 2, added on February 17th, 2009 at 2:49 PM.

I love Anne's honest brutality, sensual imagery, and understanding to put
inot words! They key to it and Everything...who would have thought of the
breast? An object of nurture and sensuality. Men can be entranced by a pair
of tata's! i like her verse " but your hands found me like an architect"
you can't help but give the girl credit regaurdless of what your personal
opinion is...the woman is brilliant!
