Compare and contrast each respective poet’s approach to feminine identity construction.

Both Sexton’s and Clifton’s poems suggest a preoccupation with the female body and how it relates to feminine identity. The contrast you generate between these different poets should contribute to a meaningful argument about contemporary feminine identity or a statement of equal or greater intellectual merit.

I see you've listed the two poets in order to compare and contrast their ideas on feminine identity......... are you studying specific works of the poets or making general observations?
