Zoe Mitchell: Hag

Mitchell’s debut poetry Collection inspired by witches is accompanied by a critical thesis considering the presentation of witches in women’s poetry. Close study of this topic highlights the patriarchal ideology at the foundation of the symbolic order and the motivation behind the designation of the witch as a villain. The critical study focuses on a close analysis of poems by Margaret Atwood, Louise Glück, Audre Lorde, Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton which use the figure of the witch to reclaim a previously negative image and expose the ideology behind it.
