Images of Anne Sexton, Twentieth-Century Woman/Poet

(p.179) 7 Are We Fake?
This Business of Words

Kathleen Ossip

University Press of Florida

With a mixture of talent, naiveté, and marketing smarts, Anne Sexton created lasting images of glamour, genius, insouciance, and self-destruction that defined the late-twentieth century woman, poet, and woman-poet. These images contributed to her success, but also made it difficult to assess her poetry, as shown by contemporary reviews of her work. “Are We Fake? Images of Anne Sexton, Twentieth-Century Woman/Poet” looks at how the images evolved and what pleasure and enlightenment we can gain from them now.

Keywords:   Woman poet, Glamour, Success, Anne Sexton, Late-Twentieth Century
