Several contemporary poets (Roethke, Lowell, Sexton, Plath, in particular) are quite sensitive to their own psychological problems and use these neuroses as subjects for poems. Analyze 3 poems by Sylvia Plath: Morning Song, The Moon and the Yew Tree, and Daddy and how Plath considers her own psychological functioning. What kinds of themes does this poetry explore? Although the average reader would not have the same range of type of problems as this poet, the poet must have faith that the reader will understand her dilemma. How warranted is such a faith–is the poet successful in ‘connecting’ with readers?
