She committed suicide after being haunted by feelings of “ill[ness], isolat[ion], and … despair” (VanSpanckeren 83) and after having an ongoing struggle with the ‘self’ and the ‘other.’ She was an eminent female poet of the 1960s whose poems mirrored the “personal” and “proto-feminist cry of anguish” (VanSpanckeren 83). Nassia Linardou claims that Sexton was considered “the high priestess” and “the Mother” (89) of confessional poetry. Her acclaimed talent emanated from her boldness to evoke newly-tackled issues such as mother-daughter relationship, suicide and sexuality. As a female poet, Sexton rebuilt her fragmented identity through her poems. Her poetry thrived on issues of the female incessant struggle, and her poems were “encoded with images of domesticity and motherhood – images which gender [her] poetry – and [her] employment of the first person pronoun” in her poetry (Crosbie 59).

Curiously, Virginia was home-schooled for the better part of her childhood, mostly in English classics and Victorian literature. She published her first novel The Voyage Out in 1915, and later became one of the central subjects of feminist criticism, a movement that erupted in the 1970s, after already being a significant figure in London literary society. She passed away after suffering from various bouts of mental illness throughout her life, ending with her taking out her own life by drowning, at the age of 59.
