The Poem “Barbie Doll” by Marge Piercy was a very interesting poem to read. It was one of those poems that people can either really decipher the meaning or not understand what the author is trying to express. This poem is about a young girl who is born normal just like everybody else but puberty wasn’t too kind to her and neither were her peers.
