I have no wit, I have no words, no tears;

My heart within me like a stone

Is numbed too much for hopes or fears;

Look right, look left, I dwell alone;

A lift mine eyes, but dimmed with grief

No everlasting hills I see;

My life is like the falling leaf;

O Jesus, quicken me.

In the poem, \"A Better Resurrection\" by Sylvia Plath, the speaker compares her life with that of a stone and a falling leaf because she just goes through the motions of life, but is not really living. She feels lonely and desolate because she has chosen to live this way due to her illness of manic-depression. She strives to cope with the overly exagerated symptoms by writing and evaluating her own emotional and mental state. Plath uses an allusion with the original version of this poem by Christini Rossetti that was wrote in 1876. The title of this poem is significant in that it allows Plath to hope for a recovery from this devastating illness that at the time was not acknowledged by medical doctors. Therefore, there was not an effective treatment like the ones that exist in current day. Plath utilizes the metaphor of resurrection with that of a renewal of her life or a restoration. She eventually terminated her life on February 11, 1963 manifesting her agreement that the illness had triumphed over her.

I feel like she has given up. Her heart is numb and she has no other words or emotions to explain what her depression is. She feels alone, as though nothing anyone can do can help her any longer. All she feels is grief, and she just wants her life to end, hence when she says Jesus, quicken me. End her life now.
But who is this poem really written by? I don\'t understand.

.: :.

In Plath’s poem, ‘A better resurrection’ the persona is a multifaceted one with alliteration of ‘no ‘I have no words, I have no wit, no fears’ this is used to emphasize the severity of her depression. Throughout Plath’s poem she expresses ambiguous meaning, In the quote ‘ no everlasting hills I see’ it is evident that the persona’s physical journey has ended on this Earth and is yet to begin in the next life, yet it can also mean she has stopped moving further in her life and cannot see the beautiful ending in life. Throughout the poem Plath’s biblical reference of Jesus and his resurrection is one in which she wishes to portray into her life, for her life to be a ‘better resurrection’ the themes of loss, death and meaninglessness of life are all evident in the quote ‘is numbed too much for hopes and fears’ where she feels a loss of her life, where her poetry fails to become published she feels meaningless and feels existential because she questions her own purpose in life. :)

This is Christina Rossetta\'s poem written in 1862 (so the person who wrote \'isn\'t proper grammar\' is mistaken. Please take this down or correct it.

i\'m confused by \"A lift mine eyes\" to be honest, it just isn\'t proper grammar.

This is the first stanza of Rossetti's poem, with the same title.

.: Analysis :.

I think that Sylvia Plath's "A Better Resurrection" is simply saying that she is tired of her life, her reason for playing with death. She is "numbed too much for hopes and fears" and just wants Jesus to "quicken"(end) her death.
