Again, I am floored by Millay's imagery in her sonnets. She appears on the surface to have a certain cattiness in her poetry. She at once appears hurt and bitter. After reflecting on the poem, one can easily see that the bitter tone of the speaker barely conceals a dreadfully hurt woman who conforms to society's ideas of how she should react or behave in her brokenhearted state.
