General Review of the Sex Situation | Dorothy Parker Society
Woman wants monogamy; Man delights in novelty. Woman lives but in her lord; Count to ten, and man is bored. With this the gist and sum of it, What earthly good can come of it? Parker at this time was Divorced. She had extra martial affairs herself. So I wonder if this poem was about her or her husband.
The writer proved the point with relatable dialogs and an anecdote to let readers visualize a plausible situation. The author also connected this argument with argument 2 to demonstrate her point made before. She included a book Fighting for Life by Walter Ong to point out the opposition between two different genders method in conversing. It is a personal and emotional poem about her view of the world and how change is needed. This essay will comprise of my response to the poem, both as a poem and an oral performance.
Add to list. Dorothy Parker Follow. Woman wants monogamy; Man delights in novelty. Love is woman's moon and sun; Man has other forms of fun.
