Daddy! I want a squirrel!~Veruca Salt, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Sylvia Plath's poem, "Daddy" was probably one of the most confusing poems I've ever read. I just simply could not figure out if she hated her father or if she loved him. There was so much diversity throughout the poem it began to get extremely confusing, really fast. However, that was exactly what made this poem so interesting. It almost seemed like she was wanted it to be as confusing as it was, and wanted the readers to get exactly that. I think that she was confused about how she felt about her dad herself, and wanted to convey that to her audience.
