Never Try To Trick Me With A Kiss Analysis



Author: poem of Sylvia Plath Type: poem Views: 15


Never try to trick me with a kiss
Pretending that the birds are here to stay;
The dying man will scoff and scorn at this.

A stone can masquerade where no heart is
And virgins rise where lustful Venus lay:
Never try to trick me with a kiss.

Our noble doctor claims the pain is his,
While stricken patients let him have his say;
The dying man will scoff and scorn at this.

Each virile bachelor dreads paralysis,
The old maid in the gable cries all day:
Never try to trick me with a kiss.

The suave eternal serpents promise bliss
To mortal children longing to be gay;
The dying man will scoff and scorn at this.

Sooner or later something goes amiss;
The singing birds pack up and fly away;
So never try to trick me with a kiss:
The dying man will scoff and scorn at this.

.: :.

I have been reading Sylvia Plath's poems and have used "Never try to trick me with a kiss" and "Mad Gorl's Love Song" to write a research paper. They both appear to be written in Villanelle style with some innovation, but mostly true to form. I have been researching these two poems for two weeks and have not found much. "Never try to trick me with a Kiss" appears to be written about both her father and husband in the tercets. Father - "The dying man will scoff and scorn at this" and husband "Never try to trick me with a kiss". It leads me to belive that her fear of abandonment and fear of the men in her life were both brought together in this poem. Her alliteration and personifications are thought provoking of her state of mind when they were written.
"Mad Girl's Love Song appears to be written about the estrangement of her husband and the thoughts she had of betrayal and the fact that thinks "I made you up inside my head" and the lines "I shut my eyes and the world drops dead." A tragic life brought much poetry and prose to this worl.. Too bad it ended so soon.
