A Woman Unconscious Analysis



Author: poem of Ted Hughes Type: poem Views: 17

Sponsored Links



Russia and America circle each other;

Threats nudge an act that were without doubt

A melting of the mould in the mother,

Stones melting about the root.



The quick of the earth burned out:

The toil of all our ages a loss

With leaf and insect.  Yet flitting thought

(Not to be thought ridiculous)



Shies from the world-cancelling black

Of its playing shadow: it has learned

That there's no trusting (trusting to luck)

Dates when the world's due to be burned;



That the future's no calamitous change

But a malingering of now,

Histories, towns, faces that no

Malice or accident much derange.



And though bomb be matched against bomb,

Though all mankind wince out and nothing endure --

Earth gone in an instant flare --

Did a lesser death come



Onto the white hospital bed

Where one, numb beyond her last of sense,

Closed her eyes on the world's evidence

And into pillows sunk her head.

I understand this poem differently from most previous posts. The point is that, even when the world is on the brink of destruction through nuclear war, the death of a lone woman on a hospital bed moves us more. The 'lesser death' is not literal. In fact, the point is that this one death is more important to the poet.
The poem is not about Sylvia Plath's death, by the way, as it was first published in 1959.

Woman unconscious is actually a war based poem by Hughes
The poet in this poem has shown the scene of war that is going on, and its adverse effect on society. Hughes had given a vivid picture of war as how everything good is changing into worst destruction, how earth is bursting out due to the ammunition used in war. Hughes reveals the war scene through the dying eyes of a woman lying unconscious on bed of hospital. Her death is lesser as compared to the death caused by war . She has permanent wounds of war in her mind that can never be forgotten. She very much concerned about the cruelties and inhumanities of war . Hughes has tried his best to portray the actualities of war through the woman unconscious which is the face of modern world now a days .

A woman unconscious along with the adverse effects of war on the society,also depicts Hughes\'s disappointment with his married life.As in the last stanza he describes the incident of his wife\'s death(as his wife sylvia plath commits suicide in 1963)-Farahana,student of bhaderwah campuss from department of English,23.05.2013.

i think this poem reflects the war years, the destruction caused by the war and the inhumanities concerned with the war.
The poet here very artistically reveals the war consequence through the dying eyes of a woman lying on the hospital bed. Hers is a lesser death but the deaths caused by the war and the permanent wounds inflicted on the minds of people can\'t be forgotten.the poet here wants to say that see how the woman who is herself dying and is still concerned about the cruelties and inhumanities of the war.we can make out Vietnam this woman by Ted Hughes has a deep insight into the modern world of wars and destruction.
