On first appraisal, Sylvia Plath’s “Gigolo” is an illustration of her own immovability and righteousness while also pointing out the lame existences of those around her by using intense imagery, trenchant diction and abstruse metaphors involving sea creatures. Even the counterintuitive title of the piece exudes hyper-feminism —“Gigolo” is, by definition, a male concubine kept by a womanAdd another sentence regarding the title.

Emily, I admire the boldness of your argument and the strength of your approach. You take a firm position and argue it well throughout. My advice would be to re-structure your introduction to begin with your own thoughts, as well your conclusion, even though the Boswell quotation is compelling. My only other advice is to add more of Knickerbocker’s argument to show why you disagree with her approach. We can certainly discuss this more in conference. CM

Taking the already profane practice of prostitution and using it as an attention seeking title is not only childish but twisted; the author references outrageous things of this ilk to alienate and distance the reader.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
