Response to Theory Question 1: Gender Criticism

I think that Plath wrote about an outcast because at that time, the "outcasts" were not supposed to be talked about but they did exist and by writing about them these "outcasts" knew they weren't alone. The time was considered taboo for that time period because everyone was supposed to be the same and if you were different then there was something wrong with you and no one wanted to be associated with someone wrong. I feel that a fair amount of women and family can relate to this issue because even if only 1 in every 2o women have this problem then everyone who they care for will know and hopefully try to support them.
