    we have to love this womans intense use of imagery.

    Very gruesome and graphic. I also get a sense of hysteria from this poem. Sylvia Plath is my new favorite poet. (Report) Reply

    You have to love this womans intense use of imagery. The likening of blood to redcoats has inspired me often. (Report) Reply
