I am doing my FOA on the poem 'Morning Song' By Sylvia Plath.

This is our first FOA and is based on part 1 of the course (Language

in cultural context). The learning outcome I have chosen is:

“How does the audience and purpose affect the structure and content of ‘Morning Song’ by Sylvia Plath?”

Our teacher gave us a few guiding questions:

Guiding questions

a. How can language be gender-biased?

b. How does language reinforce stereotypes or culturally received ideas about what different genders do, and don't do, think and don't think?

c. Does language reflect our world, or does it create it? Is English really a non-sexist language because it has no masculine and feminine forms?

d. Is there a difference in the way men and women use language to achieve the same things? What are things that men can get away with saying but women can't (or vice-versa)?

Any Advice/tips/help. Anything will be appreciated.

Also, who do you think the intended audience of the poem is ?

Thanks in advance :)
