This poem is an EXTREMELY good poem. It has MULTIPLE poetic devices. It
several metaphors and the structure depicts the overall themes-monotomy and
conformity. From what I can gather, this poem is about mother hood and how
depressing and monotomnous it was for her. Look depper than "insects" and
you find it's a metaphor for her children. She was severly depressed hence
the depressing themes.

This poem sucks! Okay, i don't care who you are it's awful. What in
tarnations was she thinkin' when she used all those big words. Normal
people don't talk like that. At home we walk down the street and say
howdy, not the insects are getting very skinny.

as we all know in our history books that Sylvia Plath
Lived a depressing life. and what I got out of this poem Frog Autumn I felt
that the life of hers is being relived again in her poems. It's a good one
but by the feeling that I got was depressing

Just a suggestion of what this might mean. If you look at "Mushrooms", you
can tell that it was about the women's struggle for more civil liberties.
They were gaing strength. In this poem, it seems that she's discouraged.
There is little to eat (no energy, no fuel to keep their campaign going).
Just a suggestion. Anyone else care to comment? agree? disagree?
