“THE CALL OF THANATOS”: ABOUT THE POETRY BY SYLVIA PLATH

Abstract


Today Silvia Plat (1932-1963) is one of the most significant classics of American poetry of the twentieth century. She is a follower of Emily Dickinson’s poetic line. The aim of our work is to try to understand the title of the first poetic book of Plat, which was subjected to changes 8 times. Taking into account that isomorphism is one of the main poetic laws, we come to the conclusion that a consistent change of titles explicates the key to her life stages of individual experience, represented in the poems.
