Agnieszka Wynar Mrs. Mancini AP Literature and Composition 11 March 2009 “Mirror” – Sylvia Plath 1. In the first stanza of the poem the speaker is a mirror that’s hanging on a pink wall. Literally what is happening is that the mirror is hanging in the room and giving a true reflection of whatever looks into it. 2. The mirror on the wall has turned into a lake in the second stanza. Now the lake is giving a true reflection just like a mirror. In the second stanza a woman comes to the lake and looks into it to see herself and she comes back every day as she gets older and the mirror always shows her the truth. She never looks younger or older when she looks into the mirror, she sees herself aging in the reflection of the lake. 3. The speaker of the first stanza describes himself/herself as “silver and exact”, “not cruel, only truthful”. The speaker of the second stanza describes himself/herself as “faithful”. The speaker’s attitude is truthful, honest, pure and hurtful but not cruel.
