In her time, the role of women was limited to the boundaries of the home. Women were considered as men’s property, and they were supposed to take care of their husbands and women. While this was essential for the sustenance of the family system in the society as well as good nurturing and up-bringing of the children... ? 17 May The Characterization of Aunt ...

Unlike prose, poetry is bound by certain formal considerations – even the most radical of free verse poets, have a ‘method in their madness’, a particular logic to their work that gives the piece a rhythm of its own.
