Sylvia Plath Notes I. Sylvia Plath a. Her work was extremely important from a literary standpoint b. She’s definitely a part and core of post­modernism i. Postmodernism includes the reemergence of female poets II. Plath and Postmodernism vs. Modernism a. Complicated definition b. Taboo subject matter c. Disorder i. Different than high modernism, where although reality is fragmented,  artists and writers try to bring that reality together. ii. The poet with Plath does not have the type of authority as truth­seer that  those of high modernism would’ve seen. d. Accessible i. There’s a lot more accessibility from Plath’s work than from high  modernists. 1. There’s an embrace of popular culture and contemporary history. ii. Modernists turned to the pasts for meaning and symbolism and answers. If people wanted to understand, they needed to go back and read the original  texts. 1. This created an elitist air among Modernists iii. Plath becomes a character within her own poetry, where as most  Modernists had poetic distance. e. Symbolism/myth i. Idiosyncratic use of myth/symbolism is accessible ii. The emphasis is on the uniqueness of individual experience, rather than  what the past has made you. f. Romanticism i. There’s more of a Romantic view in postmodernism than in neoclassicism. ii. We see a return to Romantic notions (which Modernism rejected). iii. Plath attempts a type of Romanticism. 1. The individual experience, the “I” in poetry.
