Body in the Landscape as the Subject of Sylvia Plath's Poety
The article includes reflections on the human body in the landscape as a main subject of Sylvia Plath's poetry. The landscape and nature are real but distorted by subjective vision of poet's psyche. And the body is determined by this environment. Sometimes we can see two types of anatomy: human and natural. In Plath's poetry there is also seen the influence of the philosopher R. E. Emerson, who wrote that the human and the nature are in ideal unity. The landscape around person who speaks in Sylvia Plath's poems merges with her body. Nature seems to be the extension of the body. Element of the nature penetrate human organs. Sometimes the landscape in Sylvia Plath's poems is very unpleas-antforthe human body, isfull of cold stones, thorns and poisonous fume. The flowers and the trees in Plath's poetry usually are person if icated. Red flowers such as poppies or tulips are alive, their rich color is compare with wounds. In Poem fora B/rt/iday there is shown the relationship between nature and human body. The metaphors there are similar to imaging in the poetry of Theodor Roethke. Special subject in Plath's poetry is water landscape. Water is the border that lyrical subject of poems can't across. In such a environment person can't move. Water in this poetry is usually dark and scary.
