Boeotian - Robert Frost

I love to toy with the Platonic notion
That wisdom need not be of Athens Attic,
But well may be Laonic, even Boeotion.
At least I will not have it systematic.

Wicked and intense; Marge targets a cynical aristocracy of existence which drives some people insane- but not all: amazing that some people feel 'normal' and 'complicit' with these kinds of attitudes- and in fact actually create and indoctrinate them. Sad/depressing/irritating/interrupting something that was meant to be genuine- life itself.

Piercy's works are dark and morbid. Plagued with depression and mental illness, hospitalized in a mental institution, divorced twice, remarried a third time, she eventually committed suicide. She was lost and extremely unhappy- while living a feminist lifestyle which was never able to make her happy- yet she is considered to be an inspirational addition to the feminist movement. I am a wife and mother. Piercy's life and ideas are not an example I want my daughters following.
