English Abstract

The present study aims to investigate how Sylvia Plath and Emily Dickenson applied the theme of death in a number of their works.

The study hopes to find how psychology, death and feminism are linked together in the works of these two poets, who suffered from feelings of loneliness and depression.

The study supposes that both poets subconsciously sought out death for they saw death as freedom, and release from the pains, and injustices of life imposed upon them by their patriarchal societies.

The study applies theories of feminism and psychoanalysis on the works of the two authors in order to show that death for them meant not only an escape but also a triumph.
