  1. ...sorry for just noticing the test time was 2018.....(tears
  2. Few points from a Sylvia Plath fighter...( 1. Circle out all the images and write down their original means and symbolic extend meaning. (e.g. tulips are normally related to red color, passion, and beauty, but in Plath's poem it indicates bustle and pain together with other semantic groups) 2.Structurally analysis your poem. Any extremely long sentences? Any single stanzas?These might suggests the poet's shift of emotion or focus. 3. Pay attention to the narrative voice, this helps you to verify the implied author's intention of writing this poem. (e.g. Some poets, especially ancient Chinese poets will deliberately avoid the use of the first-person narrative in order to secretly blend their own feelings with the scene) 4. Delicate dictions are worth analyzing. Since you must have a higher level of proficiency in English than me, there's no advice I can give in this area(...sorry Extra perspectives: Is the narrative time in this poem linear or annular/flashback? Why? (e.g Annular narrative voice reveals inevitability and sense of fate, while flashback narrative voice is commonly employed in the theme of reminince) Is the narrative space in this poem sealed or opened? Why? (I personally believe it's a good entry point for the analysis of emotion. Just imagine a closed elevator and a meadow under sunshine) These are tips I summarized from my experience of Chinese/English poem learning. Hope they can help you and good luck! 🦊
