Jealousy is not felt physically, and yet it can prick at a person’s heart like a sharp needle, and affect the way that one can act. But can this feeling be taken too far? Imagine a woman, who is weeping in her room, hearing news that her husband, Jason, would be marrying someone else. She is at first in disbelief, and falls into a deep depression over her grief, not even being able to bear seeing her own children. This is definitely unjustified and morally incorrect for her husband to leave her, and she does not deserve this treatment.

SUMMARY American poet, Linda Pastan, in her poem “Marks” published in 1978 addresses the topic of women’s roles in the household and asserts that although mothers may be good at their household job, their desire to fulfill other careers is overpowering and necessary to thrive. Pastan supports her claim by using vivid imagery, such as describing the grades she gets from her life job, a repeating pattern in the sentence structure, when listing what each of her family members grades her as, and connotative diction, when describing her feelings about being targeted in such a hardening and impersonal way. The author’s overall purpose is to inform readers that women were and still are being stereotyped, so that they might think about how they treat
