Ms. Sylvia Plath, an acknowledged poet and the English lecturer at Smith College, has been an inspiration to the youth in poetic realm. The varied assortment ranging from “Pursuit”, to “Mad Girl’s Love Song”, to “Spinster” has given the poetic foundation a varying aspect of confessionalism. Although of providing a new paradigm for poetry, Ms. Plath’s course is so indulged in expression that is making poetry excessively subjective. The use of poetry as a form to express personal emotions is recognized, but lack of reason and overwhelming depression with gender bias is hurtful for all. Subjectivism is an integral portion of poetry to express human emotions.
Both Dickinson and Ferrante may have been motivated in their anonymity by a desire for privacy. Much of Dickinson 's poetry represents an exploration of profound affective experiences, and she undoubtedly felt vulnerable in such a situation. For example, in her poem, "I Felt a Funeral, in my Brain," Dickinson explores the speaker 's mental turmoil and subsequent descent into madness, a truly private and frightening experience. If Dickinson 's poetry reflects her personal experience, to any extent, it is unsurprising that she would wish to share her poetry with only her most intimate acquaintances; in publishing her work, her deepest emotions would be put on display for the scrutiny of strangers. Ferrante likely had a similar motivation for adopting a pseudonym, particularly if Elena 's thoughts and feelings are indeed reflections of the author 's own childhood experiences.
There are some rhymes, such as “night” and “sight.” There is also the personification of the mind, who will discharge its secrets to a pillow. By personifying the mind, this passage provides a better image of what is happening because it is able to illustrate the way Lady Macbeth is letting out all her secrets unconsciously. This shows that Lady Macbeth has grown because she feels guilty with all the murders and is unable to deal with it. This poem also characterizes the doctor because it shows how observant he is and how he understands her troubles.
Symbolisms role within the story plays the largest role in bringing forth her understanding of the fever but is backed up by her vivid characters and her play on ironic dialogue.

The short story Nirvana by Adam Johnson captures a futuristic story about a sick woman - Charlotte, and her accommodating partner, who looks after her. From Charlotte's partner’s perspective, the readers get a taste of the terrible circumstances Charlotte is in from not only the storyline but also the use of somber tone. Throughout the heartfelt story, Johnson implements many devices in order to evoke sympathy from the reader, some of these include: short declarative sentences and symbolism. Through the use of short declarative sentences, the author creates a sense of urgency and relevance. By getting straight to the point and bluntly stating some difficult situations, Adam Johnson creates suspense and almost a sense of casualty.
Such experiences as the foregoing were not uncommon in her married life. (Chopin III)” Chopin uses the super detailed description of Edna crying to appeal to the audience and demonstrate how Edna’s current situation is exceedingly unpleasant. In both situations the authors use pathos to appeal to the audience and show the characters in dark and unpleasant situations to display how horrendous their situations
This theme came about in Dickinson’s poem because it explained of the defense that anger could offer her to protect herself, but it also presented problems of being wretched to others. The author can be seen as a somewhat caring individual throughout this poem because she always seems to be caught between being nasty to a person or letting them be nasty to her. She always seems to allow herself to be hurt just so no one else has to be, but eventually her anger overwhelmed her and now anger is not only seen as her enemy but also as her friend. Although Dickinson’s poem “My Life had stood a Loaded Gun” deals with the battle between using and controlling ones wrath; Marvin Gaye’s song “Anger” talks more about trying to conceal and eliminate his old rage.
This painting is a desperate cry of pain but Kahlo is not ashamed of whom she is and what she has gone through. Her past has made her into the artist that she is; she transformed her experience and memories into passion on canvas. Her self-portrait is exaggerated by herself and not depicted in a realistic way. Audience who does not have an idea on Kahlo’s past will question if the painting is being literal or fiction or whether it should be taken literally. As Rebecca West once wrote “Everyone realizes that one can believe little of what people say about each other, but it is not so widely realized that even less can one trust what people say about
He went insane and had to go to an asylum, all because of the strong feelings that conquered his life. It does indeed apply a negative effect on love. Overall, the writer successfully used various techniques and poetic devices that portray love as both a negative and positive emotion. He widely uses personifications as a technique that creates vivid images, as well as some similes and metaphors. I felt like love is an emotion that can either make or break your life, as I was reading the end of the poem where he was questioning himself and began to portray love as a negative emotion.
The stereotype about the mentally ill does not help the violence that gets brought into the world. The mentally ill become violent when brought up in a negative manner. One of the many ways violence has been decreased is the knowledge about the mentally ill in the general population and the understanding and communication that the acceptable ways that a mentally ill should be treated. The acceptance and the understanding lead to a better relationship between the mentally ill and the general population which is able to increase the way that the two interact with each other on a regular basis. The media presents the mentally ill as a highly violent natured person.
After watching the video Art 21. I deeply agree with Wodiczko’s comment on how people feel more comfortable talking to strangers through the beauty of art, than to talk to love one’s about personal and painful experiences in person. The idea of sharing your story through a monument is an amazing idea because it allows people to speak out and express themselves about the several issues that we as a society are afraid to talk about for the fear of being judged, treated differently or even harassed by the media. One projection that stood out to me was the Tijuana projection that gave a deep insight on what young girls go through in their culture and the emotional pain each and one of them go through. These girls were brave enough to shared their stories with an audience that was interesting in listening to their pain and suffering behind a monument that gave them the courage to speak out.
The heavy bedstead, which was nailed to the ground, was another feature that represents the room as a jail cell. Therefore, the room that she is prisoned shows how the madness benefited her to gain control and achieve a way to escape her confinement. In conclusion, the diverse literature 's do share a common theme that shows women fighting to overcome societal expectations due to the female gender not valued as thinkers capable of being their equals and mental illness can be caused by society’s stereotypical
She loses herself, as I would imagine Sophie to do after a life time of oppression. Jane saw a woman in the wall, and then became her. She took on that identity, and in her mind, then became free of ruling and imprisonment. All of my sympathy for any of the other characters in this work went solely to Jane. Her obvious mental instability made the story difficult for me to read- not because it’s what’s wrong with her, but what’s wrong with professional medical abuse, which especially back then was an ongoing problem in addition to today.
