Born to Die | Lana Del Rey

Romantic Vintage Ballet Flats - Le Bunny Bleu

I'm doing a poetry paper and one of the poet's of whom's poetry I'm analyzing is Sylvia Plath. I just discovered her recently and I find her works very moving. I was in a trance all of english period as I listend to Lana Del Rey's lovely, creepy voice and read Sylvia Plath's poetry. 

I see so many similarities between Lana Del Rey's music and Sylvia Plath's poetry. In particular I can't help but think of Sylvia Plath when I listen to Born to Die. I used to really hate poetry up until a year ago and now that I'm finding a poet I can relate to it's so lovely. 

Honestly I'm so happy I started reading her poetry because I understand her and she says the things I don't know how to say. 

"Out of the ash
I rise with my red hair
And I eat men like air."

I love Sylvia Plath and have for about 3/4 years! I read a short story by her when I was 13 about growing up and losing innocence and realizing that the world isn't all fairy tails and rainbows. I mean you read my essay right? My sadness about growing up. Oh it was a good yet sad story! Wonderful set by the way, dear!!

Sylvia Plath is up there on my list of favorite female poets! Along with Emily Dickenson, who is my all time favorite :) Poetry is so subjective, but thats just what I love about it.

If you like Sylvia Plath, you should read "The yellow wallpaper" by Charlotte Gilman! It's not a poem but it has similar themes with a lot of her work and it's a short story so it won't take too long either.
