  • Anne Sexton - 1,246 words
    Anne Sexton Anne Sexton The third decade of the twentieth century brought on more explicit writers than ever before, but none were as expressive as Anne Sexton. Her style of writing, her works, the image that she created, and the crazy life that she led are all prime examples of this. Known as one of the most "confessional" poets of her time, Anne Sexton was also one of the most criticized. She was known to use images of incest, adultery, and madness to reveal the depths of her deeply troubled life, which often brought on much controversy. Despite this, Anne went on to win many awards and go down as one of the best poets of all time. Anne Sexton was born Anne Gray Harvey on November 9, 1928 ...

  • Anne Sexton - 622 words
    Anne Sexton ANNE SEXTON Her Kind This is a poem that is filled with imagery that the author uses to identify the reader with what I feel were personal stresses in her own life. In class we talked about Anne as an emotionally challenged women who couldnt cope with every day life. The Title of the poem suggests by saying Her that she is talking about someone else that she could relate to. However I think that instead she might have been talking about her self.

All the stanzas have seven lines and all have the same ...

  • Edna Millay - 738 words
    Edna Millay Edna St. Vincent Millay defied the times in which a woman was to operate, in her life style, and in her poems, "Renascence", "My candle burns at both ends", and "I forgot in Camelot, the man I loved in Rome." She was one of the best known poets of the 1900's. Her poems were said to be delicate but outspoken (World book 1968). While in school in addition to being an exceptional student her teachers also considered her to be a particularly bad student, because teachers would give lectures and she would interrupt asking acute questions. Overall, Millay was a very odd lady for her time (Gurko 59). This was because she was a "free woman", which was a symbolic figure in the late 18 and ...

  • To A Friend Whose Work Has Come To Triumph - 430 words
    To a Friend Whose Work Has Come to Triumph In the poem "To a Friend Whose Work Has Come to Triumph", Anne Sexton alludes to the flight of Icarus and Daedalus and to "To a Friend Whose Work Has Come to Nothing" to convey a message to a friend. I think this poem was written to reassure a friend that what she did was the right thing. Perhaps a father figure of the friend advised her to do something and she defied him, making herself feel worried that she did the wrong thing. William Butler Yeats once wrote a poem titled "To a Friend Whose Work has Come to Nothing". It was a poem believed to be written to reassure a friend that what she ended up doing was a noble thing even though in reality she ...
