Barbie Doll

No matter how many times I assign this poem to beginning freshmen, I still get the same results: a big debate about American women and their obsession with perfection. It has had a profound effect on many. It is for that reason that I will continue to make them THINK.

I wish I knew a way to protect my daughter from this but at least in her case, it won't come from her own mother or grandmother which has to be the most devestating.

you are brilliant. I have written lots of poetry in my past. and by some bizarre coencidence it had alot of the same character that your poetry has and that astounds me.

I think she should have cut off everyone else's noses and legs and forced them to eat it instead.

we read this poem at school... i think its really good and has alot to do with girls and women always trying to be perfect. This poem takes it to the extreme

we did this in class for an assignment. we had to read it and write a 3 page essay on it. it is a good way to show stereotyping. like how girls are supposed to look like "Barbie" but in reality nobody does or should want too.
