READ Ì PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ì Anne Sexton Anne Sexton Ì 6 CHARACTERS READ The Complete Poems Anne Sexton Bout the inner lives of men and women This book comprises Sexton's ten volumes of verse. Someone once said that we have art in order not to die of the truth a dictum we might neatly apply to Sexton s perspectives To Hayden Carruth the poems raise the never solved problem of what literature really is where you draw the line between art and documentary Maxine Kumin in her Foreword Sexton s poetry transcends the shamelessly personal because unlike Plath she did not disguise herself behind metaphors not in the least as cerebrally as Plath anyway And in doing so she rendered herself not only accessible than Plath but paradoxically hard to read As I said she transcends the mere personal this is flesh and blood here You re not simply reading a journal you re reading each and every waking thought every single nightmare and dream every trip to the hospital every death and every birth which she went through This is than biography This is the poetic reconstruction of the person Anne Sexton was in all its nakedness I did not know the woman I would benor that blood would bloom in meeach month like an exotic flowernor that childrentwo monumentswould break from between my legstwo cramped girls breathing carelesslyeach asleep in her tiny beautyI did not know that my life in the endwould run over my mother s like a truckand all that would remainfrom the year I was sixwas a small hole in my heart a deaf spotso that I might hearthe unsaid clearly Critics of confessional poetry might say that in maintaining fidelity to one s person alone writers risk universality and will only be relevant to a certain class of readers But I have to say that you do not need to be a manic depressive to get Sexton s poetry you just need to be human We re not all that different from each other deep down where fears fester and dreams are born By simply being Anne Sexton she wrote about the human condition in its insanity glory and passion She wrote about me and you and all of us in our collective rowing towards something meaningful and substantial In short she s universal and relevant as heck Sweet weightin celebration of the woman I amand of the soul of the woman I amand of the central creature and its delightI sing for you I dare to liveHello spirit Hello cupFasten cover Cover that does containHello to the soil of the fieldsWelcome roots Coming to the poetry I think Transformations stands out remarkably in terms of literary significance from the rest of her books What she did is something very fascinating here She reworked many famous Grimm stories and brought them down to planet earth stripping them of their happily ever afters and exposing them for what they really stand for in the real world which we all inhabit Those who have cherished Hans Christian Anderson and Brothers Grimm as kids might be a little appalled to read these poems but I believe that very few will fail to appreciate these twisted interpretations Here s Cinderella for exampleAll in all it has been one hell of an experience reading Sexton and you finish with the illusion if you can call it that of having known a very troubled yet sensitive spirit intimately There are poems about madness about the parent child relation and how things never go right there about her mother s death her father and sister about her children about her marriage about being a woman and living as one and how hard that gets about God and religion and her constant battle with doubt and belief and how sometimes one wins over the other and so on and about simply being The being part is not really easy for many people and it surely wasn t easy for Anne who ultimately and successfully committed suicide at the age of 45 but leaving herself behind in her poetry for all of us to know If it is true that she attracted the worshipful attention of a cult group pruriently interested in her suicidal impulses her psychotic breakdowns her freuent hospitalizations it must eually be acknowledged that her very frankness succored many who clung to her poems as to the Holy Grail Time will sort out the
