The hospital setting, in which she is “nobody,” provides a place where she can “learn peacefulness, lying by myself quietly,” as Plath explains in lines 3-4. She goes on to describe her room as very white and serene, and within the walls is a temporary escape from all the cares of the world outside, all the “baggage” she carries in relation to her family....   [tags: Tulips Essays] 542 words

The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood - In The Handmaid’s Tale, much use is made of imagery; to enable the reader to create a more detailed mental picture of the novel’s action and also to intensify the emotive language used.

A Man's Nightmare - Jonathan Swift’s poem, “A Lady’s Dressing Room,” represents a man’s love for a woman as the author, Strephon, and audience explore the happenings inside a woman’s bedroom.
