Rapid Keto Prime What is Confessional Poetry? It is when you set yourself up for the big fall, when you get daring enough to tell all. Sylvia Plath, Anne Saxton, the perverted Allen Ginsberg; Robert Lowell, whom I have several books by, was a little calmer in his verse than those poets I just mentioned. Often the "I" is used or "You" in Confessional poetry. I find most of this poetry is unflattering, and that is why I do not do a lot of it; it wasn't meant to be. It is usually personal and Rapid Keto Prime
autobiographical. The poet usually is speaking to you directly, the reader.
When I read Plath, her confessional style seems more fantasy than fiction, but be that as it may, it is her soul talking; one must forget the themes and subject matter in confessional poetry, it explores certain details, processes past emotions, events, the author is actually exploring and processing his life in front of you.
The question has arisen, "Why do they write it?" and a fair question that should be answered perhaps more from a psychologist, than a poet, for at times one needs to be brutally honest. To me, it seems it would clear the brain, and make one's guilt duller. Often times the more you write out something, the less potent it remains. A form of processing your pain.
