Onfessionalism or Memoir? The Poetry of Anne Sexton, Sylvia Plath, Robert Lowell, and Billy Collins.
Confessionalism or Memoir?
The Poetry of Anne Sexton, Sylvia Plath, Robert Lowell, and Billy Collins.
Explicated (interpret) at least one poem per poet. How are these poets alike and how are they different? What do you think of their subject matter? what do you think is meant the term Confessionalism”? Even though Collins, too, uses the Iin his poems, how is his poetry different from Lowell, Sexton, and Plath? How do these poets represent their period in American Literature?
