A00VM3 You could certainly see your expertise in the work you write. The
arena hopes for even more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid
to mention how they believe. Always follow your heart.

This poem seems to me a specimen of pessimism and dejectedness. Plath had
never had a proper or a beautiful relation either with her father or later
on with her husband. This poem actually stands for the same state of Plath.

There is a oneness of tone and structure in this poem. A perfect poem, I
would say.

I really like this poem even if it talks about sorrow and her suffering but
i think she is a really good poet and i sometimes wish i could write like
her and i wish that some people could see like me!

I agree that this is a seamless, perfect little poem and it's good to see
that she possessed marvelous real talent -- lyrically lovely rhyme which
demonstrates realistic, powerful meaning. It's a little like knowing that
Picasso could actually draw. Sylvia is legit.
