Transcript of Mirror by Sylvia Plath

Mirror by Sylvia Plath Title We thought that the poem "Mirror" was about an older girl imagining herself young again, and now no matter how hard she tries, the mirror only reflects the truth Summary Connotation Attitude/Tone Shifts Title Theme Sylvia Plath The tone of the poem "Mirror" is bleak, mellow, and woeful because it shows the reality of aging. "Now I am a lake" is the shift from a mirror to a lake reflection. It shows that no matter what you look at the reflection will always be the same. The mirror has no judgment of people; it shows only what is true. The poem is about how the world is seen from a reflection and about how people want to see themselves in the reflection. We think that the title "Mirror" actually means how the mirror sees the world. Your appearance will always change no matter how different you want to see yourself. 1932-1963 born in Boston
