Tale Of A Tub - Poem by Sylvia Plath
Most of the work featured in this study guide comes from Plath's two major poetry collections — The Colossus and Other Poems and Ariel However, there are several others that date from either her early days at Smith College or the period between the publication of the two major volumes. Plath's poetry, along with the novel The Bell Jar , has situated her as one of 20th century literature's most formidably talented and fiercely imaginative writers. It is difficult to summarize the poems, as many of them suggest multiple meanings, but nonetheless, each has a particular topic that can help to differentiate between them. The earliest poem discussed here is " Cinderella ," a retelling of the fairy tale. Plath's adaptation focuses on the moment in which Cinderella hears the clock chime midnight as she dances with the prince.
