Essay on Sylvia Plath’s poem mirror

In a group, we were asked by our literature teacher to do an essay on Mirror

In the poem Mirror the lake and the mirror are personified to show what they can reflect

To continue, the lake, unlike the mirror can´t reflct perfectly youf real aspect. “In me, she has drowned a young girl, and in me an old woman rises. Here the lake talks about ageing and how he can see the the changes day after day, for example the wrikles that appear with the pass of time, it seems that women don´t like the idea of growing old. “She rewards me with tears. People want to stay young, but at that it´s imposible.

To conclude,  the personification in the poem is used to show the reflections of the mirror and the lake.
