Being a postmodernist poetess, Sylvia Plath devotes a big part of her poetry to representing the dilemmatic condition the modern women are confronted when facing the patriarchal values and the awareness of the voices of their own existence, identity as well as self-value. This paper embarks on probing Sylvia Plath’s Confessional Poetic way in presenting postmodernist women’s psychological experiences in articulating their own innermost sufferings, struggles, as well as their awareness for self-values and social status in the postmodernist world by exemplifying Sylvia Plath’s well-designed and chosen imageries in her poems, Daddy.
