What kind of cigarettes did Sylvia Plath smoke?

Sylvia Plath was a lifelong anti-smoker, though she did begin to smoke in the last six months or so of her life. (Ted Hughes mentions in his letters how much this surprised him).

Since Sylvia never really had time to settle in to smoking it is likely she would have smoked mild cigarettes - perhaps Embassy, Strand, or Guards.

She would not have been smoking Senior Service or Capstan.

What metaphors are in the poem Aftermath by Sylvia Plath?

Well, I'm a freshman so don't take me too seriously. I always thought that the people watching the tragedy of the burned down house were like what is wrong with our society and how we love to see other people in distress and our love for drama. I'm pretty sure I'm wrong but that's my best guess because I don't think that there are any metaphors in this poem.

What literary era Sylvia Plath is from?

I believe it's the 'Confessional' era, which she largely helped name. She and fellow Confessional poets like Anne Sexton defined that era in literature, where poetry became extremely abstract and absolutely emotional, with intense, sad and profound topics ranging from sexuality to the afterlife.

What is the plot of the poem 'On Looking Into the Eyes of a Demon Lover' by Sylvia Plath?

What I get from the poem as far as plot is basically that a woman looks into the eyes of her demon lover... the lover's eyes have destroyed women in the past, their beauty turned to destroy them, but because she is a witch, not beautiful, she survives, and even thrives, at the same action. Currently the poem is posted here: http://www.angelfire.com/tn/plath/demon.html, if you want to think about the plot for yourself.

Interpretation of Mirror by Sylvia Plath and from?

the poem mirror explores and reveals the complex relationship that we have with truth-the truth about ourselves.the mirror pains to be so objective-without any prejudice.the poetess calls it a four cornered god as it judges everyone unbiasedly without emotional attachment.the poem calls the moon and candles liars for they produce a flickering image and hides all blemishes.the very choice of words and writing as the mirror adds to the poignancy of the poem.the relationship between the poet and the mirror is evidently a complex one-they need each other but cause each other pain too
