Sylvia Plath – Monologue at 3am…

Written in 1956, powerful poem with some vivid, striking imagery, This poem is about loneliness, resolution, anger and determination and the strength to decide what’s wrong and what she has to do to avoid falling into madness. She has to be honest, to reflect in her words the violent passion of her emotions.
