You are - Sylvia Plath

I hated it and I seriously wanted to find Sylvia and burn her at the stake
for writing such a dull, disgusting piece of rubbish. Spoilt my day,

This poem was forwarded to me by a male friend during my pregnancy. The
reference to calendar events - 4th July to All Fool's Day was perfectly
timed for me and so the poem resonated even more so. But it's the second
stanza where she describes 'A creel of eels, all ripples'/ 'Jumpy as a
Mexican bean' that you can feel what it's like to have a baby inside. She
also gives insight into how an expectant mother feels towards their unborn
child 'Looked for like mail' / 'Farther off than Australia' / 'A clean
slate, with your own face on'. Never will a woman be so intimately tied to
another person for so long and yet not know them. In some ways they don't
yet exist in this world and she can't seem to find them no matter how far
she looks. It's the most amazing and contradictory experience.
Maybe this is a poem best appreciated by women although I see some men find
the descriptions very effective. To call admirers of the poem 'stupid'
lacks empathy which is what I think a good comprehension of this poem
