Sylvia Plath's Words for a Nursery - Sylvia Plath's Words for a Nursery Sylvia Plath’s “Words for a Nursery” depicts the embodiment of life through the symbolism of a human hand. Referring to the hand many times throughout various works(“Mirrors”, “Tulips”, “Lady Lazarus”, etc), Plath continually portrays this feature as a bodily tool around which life functions. After becoming pregnant with her first child, Plath’s analysis of the progression of life from birth to death can be seen within such a poem. Like most of her poetry, “Words for a Nursery” escalates in a positive manner until the end where death is expressed, and a sense of pessimism is briefly felt....   [tags: Sylvia Plath Words Nursery Poetry Essays] 1761 words

Over time, motherhood was raised to the status of “saintly”. This was certainly true in western cultures during the late 19th/early 20th century.  Charlotte Perkins Gilman did not agree with the image of motherhood that society proposed to its members at the time. “Arguably ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ reveals women’s frustration in a culture that seemingly glorifies motherhood while it actually relegates women to nursery-prisons” (Bauer 65).  Among the many other social commentaries contained within this story, is the symbolic use of the nursery as a prison for the main character....   [tags: Yellow Wallpaper essays]
