We can also intrepid that she feels a bit of regret because of her child being in the same situation as her, without a father. It is surprising to see a different turn in Plath’s poem which makes me wonder, if Plath loved her child so much, why did she leave? She does not want to cause her child any pain but want the child to know what pain is. In a further look at the poem, there is a suggestion that she herself could be the cause of the pain for her child. She believes that maybe her own emotional instability may cause her child to have his own anxieties.
Hawthorne describes Hester as “self-ordained a Sister of Mercy” (104) where her scarlet letter is no longer perceived as an icon for her sin, but rather a “symbol of her calling” (104). After conquering her shame, she learns to help others--those who had fallen -- recover from their own conflicts. Hester still lives with the shame of her sin every time she looks at her daughter, but manages to beat the pain and guilt that tries to overwhelm her.

Most people could not so the metaphor she used out in perspective for those who are not writers. In a small sense this poem lets the reader gaze into Bradstreet’s nature and our own. This poem along with all the other she wrote was a way for her to express her emotions into words, in this case about something very specific. As a columnist I can appreciate what she is doing and I understand the feeling she was trying to convey about the judgment she was sure to receive from the publishing of here work. Through her use of this extended metaphor, Bradstreet weaves a brilliantly intricate web of parallels: Parent and author, child and book, creator to creation.
is crucial to understanding the facts and logics that explain our world around us. However, understanding all of these aspects without trying to understand the emotions and feelings that surround life around us seems to diminish why we strive to learn in the first place. Poetry achieves this level of understanding by allowing us to really experience life through the emotions and experiences of others. In her poem, "The Mother," Gwendolyn Brooks examines the sorrow associated with abortion. The poem is a journey of rationalization for one woman who attempts to come to terms with her own guilt and the ghosts of her unborn children.
Yet when her chance at love arises, Antoinette challenges the very destination of her life and hopes to undo her already doomed demise. However, despite all these downfalls, Antoinette is simplistically understood through her voice of narration; possibly due to her complex view of the world, and her knowingly plausible condition, it forces herself to derive her life into a fragile and untrustworthy state. The voice of a young child is indefinitely touching to the reader's perception of Antoinette. The novel opens to Antoinette's narration of her dissatisfaction with life, conveying her position without a father, a broken down family name, and a mother whose love is beyond passive. Life has changed, as she clearly states, "our garden was large and beautiful as that of the garden in the Bible the tree of life had grew there.
Duffy, in this autobiographical poem, rids herself of the stereotypical attributes that portray her as a woman. The word ‘end’ shows the conclusion of childhood; regardless of being ready for it, this makes the audience feel sympathy for Red Cap, as they watch her childhood be ripped from her so early in the poem. As ‘Little Red Cap’ moves along her journey into adulthood, Duffy describes that the ‘houses petered out’, This hints at the notion that, women have traditionally stayed in the houses and performed maternal duties, but here Duffy shows that women are metaphorically reaching out for power, to ‘the playing fields’ where the men traditionally work, alluding to a feminist perspective of equality with men. Alternatively, this could be seen as ‘Little Red Cap’ leaving the protection of childhood and going int... ... middle of paper ... ...les men through use of euphemism not violence. By the conclusion of the poem Duffy’s goal has finally been achieved: ‘Out of the forest I come with my flowers, singing, all alone.’ Women’s coming out of the “forest” has been an extensive journey, but by the end, they come out ‘singing’, women have found their voice, which was so cruelly eaten by the wolf in stanza 5.
Plath shows through her repetition that death has a lasting impact on those left behind. Her yearning and despise for her father is felt through pain in the vivid imagery. This loss is transported to other relationships “I made a model of you, a man in black... ... middle of paper ... ...r towards something more sinister. Here the woman is given the status of wife by society but is unable to exercise it within herself, rendering her without a personal identity. Through their poems Plath and Frost have given the reader an insight into the feelings of loss.
Even you, my brother / as though it never happened / But I killed for you.” Here Gretel has realised she has lost her innocence and her childhood has been robbed, like so many children of today’s world. In the poem, symbolism is used as a powerful technique to reinforce the darkness Gretel feels but also relates this common human experience, fear, to our own life.
When she does not find it, Joy begins to believe that she is unworthy of anyone's admiration. This basic premise allows for Manley Pointer to easily win Joy's trust.
