Sylvia Plath's Poem

Mad Girl's Love Song is such a bittersweet poem. She regrets how her love
ended up, but does she really regret the love itself?

She doesn't believe that it is better to have loved and lost than never to
have loved at all. Her lack of faith is obvious in that she only believes
in what is proven in the flesh and her belief comes from her feelings, like
most. She is mad because the greatest love she has felt/experienced has
left her and she has no faith in finding a love comparable to that of which
she has no more. But she has that love still, burning, just with no way to
be satisfied herself.

this poem tells about the emptiness of love. She had a face in her mind and
could not get the person abt whom she dreamt. It does not meen anyone
ditched her, she simply could not find a person abt whom she has dreamt.

Poem about love that only touched her and has not been fulfilled. Funny how
american readers can find God everywhere. Also here in something more
physical than
most of others.

I think this is a poem about how she thinks that love is pointless. She
dreams of this wonderful man coming into her life, but tricks her into
sleeping with him before marriage (which is against her beliefs) and so God
comes in and punishes her and whatnot. And he leaves her, but promises to
return. He never does, and she forgets him. When she says she should have
loved a thunderbird, I think she is saying she should have loved someone
who wouldn't leave her. But keep in mind she believes it is all a dream,
either that or this is how she thinks it will go when she falls in love.
