    Hi, I'm doing my AS Level English Lit exam tomorrow and one half of it is a comparative essay on Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes. My teacher seems to think that the theme of identity is quite likely to come up, but what does that actually mean? Like, I know what identity is in a literal sense, but in the sense of talking about 'identity' in a poem, how would you approach doing that? Thank you in advance

    Most often it relates to their struggle for identity or often just who they are with regards to:
    Social class
    Race
    Gender
    Political opinion
    Sexuality
    Struggle as a writer
    Religion
    Etc. and the impact and influences this has upon their life
