I'd discovered...that if you do something incorrect...with a certain degree of arrogance, as if you knew perfectly well you were doing it properly, you can get away with it and nobody will think you are bad-mannered or poorly brought up.

They will think you are original and very witty.

i love sylvia plath's work. i had an english professor in college (who was also a published poet, or rather, is) who, when i told him that i really enjoyed her poetry, told me that he found them "harrowing." yes, they are harrowing. but if one is unafraid to get into her mind they can be amazing to read. my favorite poem of sylvia's is Elm.
