HW10 due 9/29: Sylvia Plath

1. Research and take notes on Sylvia Plath. More than any author thus far, the writer’s life (context) is key to fully understanding her work.

2. Read and explicate Daddy.  Be sure to print out this poem and bring it to class.  Explicate the poem on the printed page.   An explication entails a more detailed break down of a piece of literature (i.e. line by line).

3. You will read and explicate two Sylvia Plath Poems over the next couple of days.  Tonight, we read and explicate Lady Lazarus.  Be sure to print out this poem and bring it to class.

4. Give thought to what you would like to write about in your Confessional Poem.
