Unformatted text preview: Emily Tinsley English 102/ C. Mulligan 11 November 2009 Sylvia Plath: “Gigolo” 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. Re-structured to show why you hold this position. Say why you hold this position. Introduce more of Knickerbocker’s argument—perhaps with a quotation—then explain why you disagree with it. Citation?

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.
