    Sylvia's Use of Senses in Ariel "Ariel" possesses power and importance, a certain element of orgasmic stress to the degree to which the horseback ride Plath once took becomes something more—a ride into the abyss of the unknown, a stare back into the eye of the sun, an odyssey to death, a stripping of personality and selfhood, a sort of blatant exposition. To treat "Ariel" as a confessional poem is to suggest that its actual importance lies in the horse- ride taken by its author, in the author's

Today, most women are willing to exploit their own bodies and degrade their sexuality. There has been a huge change in the way women present themselves today in comparison to the 1970s. Levy stated that she would turn on the television and see strippers explaining how to lap dance a man to orgasm or channels with babies in tight, tiny uniforms bouncing up and down on trampolines

    In 1989 Ariel, from “The little Mermaid,” was the girl—or should I say fish—that every girl wanted to be like, and her lasting impression on all girls around the world has continued to this day.

    What immediately strikes the audience about The Tempest is the use of the supernatural in the form of apparitions like Ariel and the Harpy. These apparitions are under Prospero's authority and the result of his Art, which is the disciplined use of virtuous knowledge.
