Metaphors

Metaphors

  

by Sylvia Plath

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

(5) Tree Line

Though this is a short, relatively simple poem, it's also a riddle, and you have to work a little to get at the hidden meanings in this poem. There's metaphor after metaphor, and each line could trip you up. Keep up the hike, though, and you'll enjoy it if you stick it out to the end.
