summary
Images of mirrors and reflection have long played a substantial role in literature by women, used to convey ineffable psychological states, the countless images that define and complicate women’s lives, and much more. This book focuses in particular on the work of two major women writers, the Persian poet Forugh Farrokhzad (1935–67) and the American poet Sylvia Plath (1932–63), exploring the various ways that these two artists deployed mirrors and reflections as sites of entrapment or emancipation
