Daddy

Daddy

"Daddy" is a poem written by American poet Sylvia Plath. It was written on October 12, 1962, shortly before her death, and published posthumously in Ariel in 1963. The poem's implications and thematic concerns have been discussed academically, with many differing conclusions. The relative popularity of "Daddy" can be attributed to Plath's vivid use of imagery and controversial use of the Holocaust as a metaphor.
