i haven’t read a whole book since may. what i have done is … nothing that any public knowledge should own.
but women are children, and only men can have adult experiences.
as we can see in the subjectivity here:
Twice I have so simply declared myself,
have possessed the enemy, eaten the enemy,
have taken on his craft, his magic.
literature for me is still stuck in perhaps 1962.
how do we dare to write? well part of it, now, i think, is how do we dare to have feminine subjectivity? because feminine subjectivity is still very much how gender could be conceived of 40, 50 years ago
plath is unfortunately still, as a woman, just as pertinent today as she was decades ago.
