The heading of the poem says it all "tulips" they are representation of
mootherhood. PLatj challenges the traditional symbol of romance associated
with the flower. The flower remindes her of her sexaul personna which in
her case is cause of her physical pain becuase of a medical condition

I think this poem is significant to Syvia Plaths history, I think its her
sucide note showing her fealings, sad poem
