AbstractSevered from her own racial/cultural roots by the alien presence in the West, she was German-American, Sylvia Plath was searching desperately to find those roots and finally she gave up in despair. Together with the awesome forces flowing through and around her life like her father's death, the infidelity of her husband and her bad health, she made of her poetry a naked confession dealing with themes of blockage showing her inability to get where she wants to go, except through death. Her works never discussed outside the context of her life for her poems were intensely personal and tied up to redeem her meaningless life through art. In fact, the confessional aspect of her poetry made her a martyr to the recurrent psychodrama that staged itself within her tragically wounded personality.
