Sylvia Plath Metaphors

In her poem Metaphors, Sylvia Plath uses metaphors to describe an important phase in her life: her pregnancy. This short poem is used to describe her state of pregnancy and is a metaphorical depiction of how a woman is transformed into a mother. The poem begins with her announcement as "A riddle in nine syllables" which signifies the tenure of the pregnancy. She describes the physical symptoms as "A melon strolling on two tendrils" and a "Ponderous house" which represents the increase in size.
