Me Too

Okay, that's enough holiday cheer and merriment for now. Let's discuss something a little more important shall we? How about the repression of the female identity in a male dominated society? Or at least that's what I think Margaret Atwood is talking about in her poem, This Is a Photograph of Me. Or maybe she's talking about a fetus in the womb. Or maybe she's discussing the perception of poetry and art. Or maybe she's telling me to do laundry and go get groceries. Oh, wait, that's WD. Okay, I'm sticking with the repression theory.

This Is a Photograph of Me by Margaret Atwood

Stumble Upon Toolbar


  1. A very interesting poem.

  2. Interesting and creepy. I try not to analyze poems too much--much to a poet's chagrin I'm sure--I just know what I like when I read it and this is one of my favorites.
