M OTIF COMPLEX OF WOMEN WORLD IN SYLVIA PLATH’S POETRY

Cover Page

Abstract


This paper dwells on the analysis of the motif complex of women world in Sylvia Plath’s poetry (1932-1963) - the American poet, the representative of “Confessional Poetry” and mostly feministic author. The motif complex of women world tends to be the greatest part of the poetic heritage of Sylvia Plath. It consists of more than 10 interlaced motifs: anti-patriarchal rebellion, “creatoress”, motherhood, etc. The motif analysis gives an opportunity to trace the correlation of the “inner” and the “outer”, the “common” and the “individual”, and reveal the semantic links between Plath’s poetic texts.
