Sylvia Plath’s fig tree: discourse formation and the production and consumption of women’s identity

Abstract

Investigating the formation of women\u27s identities within Sylvia Plath\u27s work, this paper seeks to understand the position of women within society during Plath\u27s lifetime and in the wake of her death. Comparing genres of both public, private, and semi-public writing, I hinge my argument on Plath\u27s famous fig tree passage to understand three distinct feminine identities and the inherent consumption and production that accompanies women\u27s identity formation
