Medusa Analysis



Author: Poetry of Sylvia Plath Type: Poetry Views: 1205

The Collected Poems1960Off that landspit of stony mouth-plugs,

Eyes rolled by white sticks,

Ears cupping the sea's incoherences,

You house your unnerving head -- God-ball,

Lens of mercies,

Your stooges

Plying their wild cells in my keel's shadow,

Pushing by like hearts,

Red stigmata at the very center,

Riding the rip tide to the nearest point of

departure,Dragging their Jesus hair.

Did I escape, I wonder?

My mind winds to you

Old barnacled umbilicus, Atlantic cable,

Keeping itself, it seems, in a state of miraculous

repair.In any case, you are always there,

Tremulous breath at the end of my line,

Curve of water upleaping

To my water rod, dazzling and grateful,

Touching and sucking.

I didn't call you.

I didn't call you at all.

Nevertheless, nevertheless

You steamed to me over the sea,

Fat and red, a placentaParalyzing the kicking lovers.

Cobra light

Squeezing the breath from the blood bells

Of the fuchsia. I could draw no breath,

Dead and moneyless,Overexposed, like an X-ray.

Who do you think you are?

A Communion wafer? Blubbery Mary?

I shall take no bite of your body,

Bottle in which I live,Ghastly Vatican.

I am sick to death of hot salt.

Green as eunuchs, your wishes

Hiss at my sins.

Off, off, eely tentacle!There is nothing between us.

.: :.

This poem by Sylvia Plath is simply about the negative relationship between her and her mother. She uses both Greek mythology references and sea imagery to describe her mother. This poem is ambiguous, in that, she seems dependent on her mother and wants a positive relationship with her but at the same time she is critical of her mother and her mother\'s religion. The color symbolism of red throughout this poem stresses her life blood that her mother can either take away or give to her!
