This is a poem that is filled with imagery that the author uses to identify the reader with what I feel were personal stresses in her own life In class we talked about Anne as an emotionally challenged women who couldnt cope with every day life The Title of the poem suggests by saying Her that she is talking about someone else that she could relate to However I think that instead she might have been talking about her self Through out the poem she shows the Worlds view of the witch and then gives her own feelings on the subject such as I have been her kind and A woman like that is not a woman at allAll the stanzas have seven lines and all have the same last line It seems that the stanzas slowly lead up to some kind of explanation to the way women are treated Through out the poem the tone is a dreary one We are taken through the story relating to the witch and agreeing with the fact that these obscene gestures by the witch waving my nude arms at villages going by are some how warranted It is obvious that that the symbolism and metaphor shows us a witch and I think also these metaphors relate to the author and how she feels she is labeledIn the first stanza we get a picture of classical views of what a witch symbolizes and this then tells me how Anne must feel She says braver at night over the plain houses light by light I think this is saying that she is more comfortable at night maybe in seclusion and looks down on the average normal home light by light and sees that as been the norm and want nothing to do with it I think she feels different than the rest and the fact that she uses dark and light might even say she might even feel evil
