Abstrak :

Abstract: The American literary canons mainly those of the nineteen fifties
and the nineteen sixties had consistently portrayed women as subservient
citizens. Women in the American culture had been put under men s domination
and thus lost their identity and been unable to determine their own fate.
They played roles long prescribed by men both in the home and in their social
milieu. As products of the era a number of Sylvia Plath s poems depict
confrontation against this phenomenon of patriarchy in which women have
been inferior to and abused by men; they fight for freedom and to regain
their true roles as women and human beings.
