I know a hundred ways to die.
I’ve often thought I’d try one:
Lie down beneath a motor truck
Some day when standing by one.

Or throw myself from off a bridge—
Except such things must be
So hard upon the scavengers
And men that clean the sea.

I know some poison I could drink.
I’ve often thought I’d taste it.
But mother bought it for the sink,
And drinking it would waste it.

Another item that’s painful to bear
and that’s an ancient pro who’s too prettied up
or any poor strumpet giving herself airs.
I hate ladies who’re too proud of their legs.
And I hate down to the dregs, saalve regina,
a big fat woman with a tight vagina.

Were all the scenes in the Bell Jar of her trying to kill herself supposed to be that funny? It feels like they were, but I could never tell. That's some top rate Looney Tunes shit.

that's my actual opinion you pretentious faggot who doesn't even know what his fav poet is babbling about, nevertheless looking smarter on anonymous forum about bullying vlogers and posting joyce pictures
>>
>>10035786
First, the poem is by Edna St. Vincent Millay, who I don't have much to say on. Of course, /lit/ is pretty dumb, so will associate the picture with the poem and probably most posters will overlook this post and keep on posting as if this thread is about Sylvia Plath, so we might as well just assume this thread is about Plath.

Plath had some talent with word-smithing and all but her emphasis on bitterness and suicidal despair is just stupid. Her poems and the Bell Jar are filled with a genuinely assholey bitterness against, not herself, but the world and people around her. It's brutal to say, but I don't find her angst admirable. It's just emotionally immature and bitter. This is why I think Plath is more of a phenomenon rather than an "eternal" or timeless poet/writer. I don't blame her for her depression and sympathize with her suffering, but I also think we have a right not to enjoy such toxic self-pity and dramatization of her own problems.

TV is a very important medium in Sylvia Plath's posteriority.
The Ring is inspired by Sylvia Plath's style of coming out of a TV... backwards LOLE HAHAHAHAHA flop style

>>10036214
Are you claiming it isn't?
>>
Who was that philosopher who talked about how suicide by slashing your wrists in a warm bath was the most noble? I think it was Evola, he compared it to the Romans
