Aftermath Analysis



Author: poem of Sylvia Plath Type: poem Views: 29

Compelled by calamity's magnet

They loiter and stare as if the house

Burnt-out were theirs, or as if they thought

Some scandal might any minute ooze

From a smoke-choked closet into light;

No deaths, no prodigious injuries

Glut these hunters after an old meat,

Blood-spoor of the austere tragedies.



Mother Medea in a green smock

Moves humbly as any housewife through

Her ruined apartments, taking stock

Of charred shoes, the sodden upholstery:

Cheated of the pyre and the rack,

The crowd sucks her last tear and turns away.

Thoughtful. Though at first I had thought it told a story of a rejected and covered fire. Instead of noticing it the media and society decides to cover it and release only what they want to. After they are done (the media) they move on to the next tragedy, and when the media moves on. You move on to. Really shows a dark and twisted way to how we follow what people tell us like sheep.

I think this poem emphases that not only are humans drawn towards the disasters of other but also do nothing to help those involved in the hard time but rather one enjoys gets bored and moves on to next scandal

I think that he is characterizing herself as Medusa, in part.

I believe she was speaking about the way we all gawk and the media uses this to manipulate us. Tragedy catches our attention; and it\'s sick.

It shows how society will just watch and move as long as they are temporarily entertained by your troubles.

.: They are Vultures!!!! :.

At first it's like her family and friends all just stare at the damage (which is probally when Tom left her). They soak up the situation and twist it with thier cruel words and thoughts. They wait, ready for any indication of suffering. Then, Sylvia picks up the pieces of her shattered life and tries to move on. Although sad, she does like every person should do when thier life gets officially messed up. But they all devouer her last moments and then quickly look for a new prey. They are Vultures (not really)! :)
This poem really shows how screwed up society is.
