man or nature
Given to great thought of surroundings, this poem equals the human
companionship to nature about. Messy, gestured and yet separate that one
must make a choice. To be a companion with someone or alone with nature.
Equal yet with notice.

The last stanza of the poem ends in "or love, either". By separating love
from "curse, fist, threat" Plath implies that love is a totally different
game from the others but equally as threatening.

This poem was written in the very same year that Plath met Ted Hughes (also
a poet). Judging Hughes to be “the only one” Plath married him. Hughes,
however, is said to have been a less than ideal husband who had rude habits
and a slovenly lifestyle. Knowing that Plath is a keen observer I would
not doubt that she was blind to these habits and yet she married him. This
poem may be representative of the other path she could have taken when she
met him. Rather than taking a chance at love as she did in real life, this
poem envisions her running away from Hughes and the disorder he brought
with him and living a life of lonely order.

wow chris, i couldn't have said it better myself! i think that perhaps the
poem is feministic in its undertones, though plath was by no means a
