Poetry, for instance, can be described as a political act, which enables further thought and understanding between people. Additionally, these stories reveal the great diversity among women. Generally, women are grouped together, as stated by Lorde: “As women we have either been taught to ignore our differences or view them as causes for separation and suspicion rather than forces of change (Lorde, 1979).” Despite the efforts to categorize women’s issues into one mass of problems, White women perceive the world differently than African American women, Hispanic women, Native American women, etc., and vice versa. This conglomeration of “women’s issues” does not address every aspect of being a woman in patriarchal and unjust societies throughout the world. Through

• Regarded as the poet of domestic affections, and an advocate for women at the center of the cult of domesticity. • In many of Hemans ' works, a choice is made by several female characters to take their own lives rather than suffer the social, political and personal consequences of their compromised situations.

Although these aspects are needed for a poem to be a poem, Atwood places poetry styles such as repetition to replace the poetry styles, rhymes and meter, that she has not included in her poem.
