Sorry but do you know the name of the play please that Ted Hughes wrote? I
am very interested in Sylvia Plath and her poetry. Thank you

Kindness was written soon before plaths suicide, after her husband Ted
Hughs had left her. It is essential to know of her background to grasp the
underlying message. Her husband, Ted had written a play where a man cheated
on his wife with a mistress, the husband went off to see the mistress and
on the way ran over a rabbit, this man then went on to sell the rabbit and
buy two roses for his mistress. That is what is meant by the rabbits cry
and two roses. It has created a certain level of dramatic irony and allowed
plath to express herself and know that Ted will get her message. The
reference to a rabbits cry has no soul is in conjunction to Plaths
awareness that Ted, her own husband was unfaithful and even though this
occured the mistresses relationship had no depth or meaning as they had
together. She also states that her own children are the roses, he has left
although she ends up with the two roses a token of their love aand a prize
in a way this could be constrewed as a triumphant feeling.
The kindness that glides through her house refers to the comfort, and tea,
sympathy from her friends. However the mirror and window could have meaning
that her friends show kindness towards her on the outside however are
really feeling pitiful of her.

plath simply pains the readers here with her infallible yet pathetic
problems of how she sees no kindness in her life. the poem is essentially
very sarcastic and the term kindness is used very loosely. her children
here are portrayed as the sufferers and she values even their cries that
they are perhaps suffering due to her inadequacy as a mother. it seems that
plath did not have the intelligence to realize that "hey at least if i
stick around in the world, maybe my kids will have a mother" and for some
reason only empathized with their helplessness in her inadequacy of a
mother instead of actually doing something about it; moreover, to makes
matters worse, she kills herself and now her kids don't even have a mother
at all. the only kindness in this poem is that which sylvie receives from
her children; it is the only kindness she deserves. the only kindness she
gets from the world is that from readers who bask in the sun of
satisfaction whose core is the riddance of plath.

kindess is an abstract idea used by plath to describe the woman who was
helping her in her final days. She was there to help with the children and
this degraded Plath's sense of herself as a mother, the fact that she was
unable to care for her own children adequatly. Plath cherished her
motherhood and to have another woman intrude with her superficial fixes for
everything was hard for her to bear.

In the first paragraph, kindness is personified as a woman who is kind on
the outside but not on the inside. This is the sense given due to the
intense use of diction that shows only the outside appearance and nothing
on the inside, 'mirror' or 'window'...by window, she refers to the
reflection of the window in which the smiles are filled. But even if she
meant that the smiles filled in the window are what are seen by others
outside, either way it talks nothing of deeper personality. It is talking
about appearance or first impression. These are all superficial, not deep
or so-called real things. In the second paragraph she talks about things
under further depth and reality, such as, 'cry of a child' or 'a rabbit's
cry' or 'no soul'. And then she goes back to the superficial talk of the
woman kindness, that by eating something sweet like sugar everything will
be alright, 'Sugar can cure everything, so Kindness says.' In the third
paragraph certains words such as, 'desperate', 'anesthetized', or
'Japanese' stand out. The first word describes pressure (which agrees with
the previous comments that her desire to end her life is increasing) and
the second word is the sense of sleep but temporarily...i believe her idea
of committing suicide would be her way to get back to reality. A shock to
lead to back to reality. And so a temporary escape. And the third word,
'japanese', i believe describes how insecure she feels. She is talking
about things she has no understanding in, it shows her confusion and height
of insecurity and vulnerability. And in the final paragraph, you can tell
that her desperation is increasing due to phrases such as, 'The blood jet'
or 'There is no stopping it' but one can also tell that her only barrier
that holds her from desperation to commit suicide are her children due to
this phrase, 'You hand me two children, two roses'. this shows that she
practically blames God or even Hughes who has given her two roses that she
can't leave behind because they are like love gifts to her and, by knowing
her biography, one would know that she doesn't want to leave love. She is
attached to love. The fact that she does commit suicide shows how depressed
she was that even her utmost desire for love, which she was granted, wasnt
