As previously mentioned she uses the words ill formed and feeble to describe her unfinished writing’s fragility. In line 10, she continues by saying, “thy visage was so irksome in my sight,” to explain the shame and discomfort that she carries with her due to the fact that her “baby” was exposed to the public still so unpolished. She applies the words blemishes, flaw, and hobbling into her diction in order to express her piece as something that is not well put together, and no matter how much she attempts to polish it, she feels as if she has failed at improving it. Lastly, Bradstreet’s characterization of her work comes to life through the evident controlling metaphor of the poem, which is claiming that her writing is her “offspring”. Throughout the entire poem, the controlling metaphor becomes this idea that her writing is her child,

As if you were able to stop them! I like this quotes in particular as I feel it sums up blanches haunted and complex feelings in this scene, as it appears as something she is.

Jack Wilson 4 The question one must now ask themselves is: ‘how do female characters react to misfortune in the respective works?’ To find the answer, one must pay close attention to the many subtle devices used within them. Firstly, one should examine the similarities between the two characters: both of them are negatively impacted by their misfortunes; both of them feel murderous desires and, like Romeo, both of them reject any responsibility for their situations and choose instead to blame others. Then one should proceed to outline their differences. It becomes apparent to us that, whilst Havisham is self-pitying and overall very morose about her ordeal, the character in The Laboratory feels a sense of unsettling excitement at the prospect of attaining revenge. The latter point is substantiated in the text by the use of the colours blue and gold to describe the components of the poison she plans to use on her target.

Duffy, as Mrs Lazarus, later explains the grief has led her to throwing up; “retched,” this shows that Mrs Lazarus has led herself to tormenting herself, as she is self harming and throwing up. At the end of the stanza Duffy repeats the word dead; “dead, dead,” this showing how bad her loss is, but also conveying that Mrs Lazarus is still shocked by the loss and is still not understanding it. At the beginning of the second stanza Duffy used short lines which are broken up by punctuation which makes the verse very disjointed; “Slept in a single cot” this also shows Mrs Lazarus has no body anymore and is therefore lonely, but also suggests she is like a baby in a cot who is hopeless. Duffy then puts emphasis on Mrs Lazarus grief and despair when she uses the word “widow,” followed by the word “half” suggesting that Mrs Lazarus is incomplete. We
