Probably you ask only out of curiosity; and you pronounce this sacred word in vain. Everywhere, people know of this great symbol under different names.
And I shall seal it up With spice and salt, In a carven silver cup, In a deep vault. Before my eyes are blind And my lips mute, I must eat core and rind Of that same fruit. Sweet Heaven I shall taste Before my death. Sylvia Plath was one of the first and best of the modern confessional poets.
She won a Pulitzer Prize posthumously for her Collected Poems after committing suicide at the age of 31, something she seemed to have been predicting in her writing and practicing for in real life. I remember The dead smell of sun on wood cabins, The stiffness of sails, the long salt winding sheets.
Once one has seen God, what is the remedy? Once one has been seized up Without a part left over, Not a toe, not a finger, and used, Used utterly, in the sun's conflagration, the stains That lengthen from ancient cathedrals What is the remedy?
The pill of the Communion tablet, The walking beside still water? Is there no great love, only tenderness? Does the sea Remember the walker upon it? Meaning leaks from the molecules.
The chimneys of the city breathe, the window sweats, The children leap in their cots. The sun blooms, it is a geranium.
The heart has not stopped. Vincent Millay was the first woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for poetry. She was openly bisexual and had affairs with other women and married men. When she finally married, hers was an open marriage. She was one of the earliest and strongest voices for what became known as feminism.
One of the recurring themes of her poetry was that men might use her body, but not possess her or have any claim over her. And perhaps that their desire for her body gave her the upper hand in relationships. Vincent Millay I, being born a woman, and distressed By all the needs and notions of my kind, Am urged by your propinquity to find Your person fair, and feel a certain zest To bear your body's weight upon my breast: So subtly is the fume of life designed, To clarify the pulse and cloud the mind, And leave me once again undone, possessed.
Think not for this, however, this poor treason Of my stout blood against my staggering brain, I shall remember you with love, or season My scorn with pity — let me make it plain: I find this frenzy insufficient reason For conversation when we meet again.

Topics she covered in her poems included adultery, masturbation, menstruation, abortion, despair and suicide. The poem below is about the love of the living for the dead, dedicated to her departed parents.
I am tired of being brave. We drive to the Cape. I cultivate myself where the sun gutters from the sky, where the sea swings in like an iron gate and we touch.
In another country people die. My darling, the wind falls in like stones from the whitehearted water and when we touch we enter touch entirely.
Men kill for this, or for as much. And what of the dead?
They lie without shoes in the stone boats. They are more like stone than the sea would be if it stopped. They refuse to be blessed, throat, eye and knucklebone. The heart that cries—let it but hear Its sweet love answering, Or out of ether one faint note Of living comfort wring.A Farewell to Arms, one of the most renowned masterpieces of Ernest Hemingway, is a detailed account of life during World War I, which depicts a gruesome and deleterious reality of a soldier by incorporating themes of impermanence and change.
