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
