Week 4: Berrymen, Plaith, Sexton, etc.

Berrymen's work is dark and full of emotion. He speaks a lot of death and not only death but ways to end your life as well. Poem number 29 was my favorite out of the two. I think he's talking about a murder and how to avoid being caught.

My favorite Sexton poem is "Her Kind." The poem is written beautifully and seem to draw a connection between all women. I read it like all women are together and should relate to one another.

I have never really been a fan of Plaith. I'm not much of a fan of the confessional poetry. It's whiney and so depressing. Although her poems are interesting to read because of the relationships she talks about between father and daughter. But my favorite or her two is Ariel.
