i think this poem is really reflective on her past life and how much she
regrets being with Hughes.

I believe Plath is slightly jealous and slightly confused by this women,
who is making such a show of her operation, "whipping off your silk scalf".

The face lift provides the woman with a quick fix solution to her problems;
Plath has no quick fix to hers.

There was nothing " wonderful " about this poem,nor the author.Slvia Plath
was an example of how " not " to express yourself,especially through the
selfish act of suicide.The poem itself is like a lot of Plath's work,vague
to the untrained eye yet expressive,and always too self absorbed.Perhaps if
she spent more time in therapy with a good psychiatrist or pastor she would
still be alive.Perhaps her son would have not have killed himself as
well...Vain poetry from a vain woman,who not only damned herself but her
son now as well.

Sylvia was a very troubled young woman, and i think that only she could
explain the real meanings to her poems.
