Lady Lazarus

Lady Lazarus

by Sylvia Plath

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

(5) Tree Line

"Lady Lazarus" definitely has its tricky moments. If you don't know too much about the Holocaust, or if you're not familiar with Plath's life, the poem can be confusing. But never fear, Shmoop is here, and we promise: "Lady Lazarus" is definitely worth the climb.
