We can describe this poem as an extended metaphor or properly said
"Allegory". It's fascinating this method used by the author to analise and
describe how women won, gradually, ground over our society. Of course to
have a better apreciation on this poem we should take on account how women
were treated before the 50's and 60's. She encoureges women to do more than
being wives and mothers. "Our foot's in the door", what a significate
metaphor to describe what Sylvia Plath wants to transmit, WOMEN WON'T GIVE

The poem talk about mushrooms, Sylvia Plath, the principal character,
describe the caracteristics of the mushrooms. he said that are silently,
they grow very fast. She think that the society is like the mushrooms, that
she is a mushrooms too, because the caracteristics between the women´s of
the society in the 50`s and the mushrooms are sumilar.

In my opinion, this poem, reflects how roughly treated women where in
society through the 50’s. She develops the idea of working all women
together in order to change their role in society to reach equality. In
order not being a housekeeper, a mother, or a wife.
Sylvia Plath was a feminist who lived in a stage in which nobody take
account the job, or labours women made.
That’s why we can say that these mushrooms represent the women of that
stage, because they were trying to grow all together.

I find mushrooms very enjoyable , because is very smart silvya plath
describing the poem.
We can think , that the poem refers to many things , as women , drugs and
othes.Because this talk about something that nobody sees and its growing up
, until one day this will change.

To be able to analize tis poem, we must consider how women were treat
through the 50s. So when Sylvia Plath wrote this poem showed her feelings
about this topic because she lived in a period in which there were no
recognitions for women and the effort they made.
Finally she tried to trasmite to women that they have to fight for there
own rights, to grow in society and to reach equallity with men.

"Mushrooms" is a poem by Sylvia Plath that can be asociated to many things,
that means, the characteristics which the author shows about the mushrooms
are very similar to other objects or people.
In this case, it seems that the author chose to compare mushrooms to women.
She tries to describe the woman that lived through the 50s, and the
function they had on the family, because they had to serve their husband
and take care of the children: "We are shelves, we are tables, we are meek,
we are edible..."
Sylvia Plath is a feminist writer who finally tries to transmite through
the poem that women have to multiply, do not give up to the needs of
equality with men and the search of a new role of women in the society as
should be work and their own lives.She concludes by saying: "Our kind
multiplies: We shall by morning Inherit the earth. Our foot's in the door"

what would sylvia plath wants to tell by describing mushrooms?
the poem by silvia plath refers to women and how they were treat in a male
chauvinism society , "nobody sees us".the writer wants the reader to
discover that women are very similar to mushroom in how they were treatand
behave in society "very whitely , discreetly, very quietly"
what sylvia wants to tell about is that by being to many , they would fight
for their rights .
