Abstract

Sylvia Plath was a very famous American poet, novelist, and short-story writer. Plath became the fi rst poet to win a Pulitzer Prize. Her works are also valuable for their ability to reach contemporary reader, because of its concern with the real problems of contemporary dominant culture. In this age of gender confl icts, broken families, and economic inequities, Plath’s forthright language speaks loudly about the anger of being both betrayed and powerless. Plath’s life and works have been constructed in such a way as to perpetuate specifi c fi ctions about her marriage, mental illness, and “autobiographical” writing, and although this may in part be due to a mythologizing tendency among critics and biographers, it can be demonstrated how Plath fi ctionalizes herself in her writing style. Sylvia Plath was a uniquely troubled individual, whose originality of vision refl ected by her often dark, brooding works. Plath expressed her personal view on a variety of recurring themes, including the obstacles faced by a woman poet, infl uences that shape the self, the allure of death, and several others. The main theme of the writer’s work is the theme of the male suppression of the female identity, forced to obey the patriarchal laws and norms in order to avoid the expulsion from the “paradise” of the male tradition. Plath speaks very clearly a language we can understand. In the novel “The Bell Jar” Sylvia Plath described in detail all the physical and psychological suffering of the main character. The article is devoted to the study of the lexical fi lling of the concept of STRIDING in the individual author’s style.
