About the Book


The book examines andanalyses the poetic world of the two women, Sylvia Plath and Kamala Das, hailing from two different cultures. The present book attempts a criticalanalysis of the poetic concerns from a female perspective with the purpose of identifying and comparing the poetesses’ strategies of response to the forces of oppression that exists in a gendered society. It is through a confessional woman’s voice and through conflicts of consciousness through whichthe poets try to arrive at the poetics of individual experience.
