She holds nothing back in explaining that she was given various relaxation and sleeping pills to keep her docile and compliant. If she did not conform they would up the treatment and even punish her. This is no way for a hospital to be supposedly helping people. Kaysen wants her readers to understand the stigmatization that occurs not only within these institutions but in the world.
James McAuley and Gwen Harwood’s poems employ metaphor, symbolism and imagery to express the isolation felt by those who suffer loss. In “Pietà” a father is experiencing the physical loss of a loved one, whilst in “In the Park” a mother is suffering from the loss of self-identity as a result of motherhood.
