Can anyone give some insight into the poem Sow by Sylvia Plath? Maybe themes present, or analysis of the poem?

Question by Lisa: Can anyone give some insight into the poem Sow by Sylvia Plath? Maybe themes present, or analysis of the poem?
I’ve read it through a few times and can identify the literary terms, etc, but cannot get anywhere in interpreting the meaning or the themes in the poem. Any help would be great. Thanks!.

The poem is below:

Sow

God knows how our neighbor managed to breed
His great sow:
Whatever his shrewd secret, he kept it hid

In the same way
He kept the sow–impounded from public stare,
Prize ribbon and pig show.

But one dusk our questions commended us to a tour
Through his lantern-lit
Maze of barns to the lintel of the sunk sty door

To gape at it:
This was no rose-and-larkspurred china suckling
With a penny slot

For thrift children, nor dolt pig ripe for heckling,
About to be
Glorified for prime flesh and golden crackling

In a parsley halo;
Nor even one of the common barnyard sows,
Mire-smirched, blowzy,

Maunching thistle and knotweed on her snout-
cruise–
Bloat tun of milk
On the move, hedged by a litter of feat-foot ninnies

Shrilling her hulk
To halt for a swig at the pink teats. No. This vast
Brobdingnag bulk

Of a sow lounged belly-bedded on that black
compost,
Fat-rutted eyes
Dream-filmed. What a vision of ancient hoghood
must

Thus wholly engross
The great grandam!–our marvel blazoned a knight,
Helmed, in cuirass,

Unhorsed and shredded in the grove of combat
By a grisly-bristled
Boar, fabulous enough to straddle that sow’s heat.

But our farmer whistled,
Then, with a jocular fist thwacked the barrel nape,
And the green-copse-castled

Pig hove, letting legend like dried mud drop,
Slowly, grunt
On grunt, up in the flickering light to shape

A monument
Prodigious in gluttonies as that hog whose want
Made lean Lent

Of kitchen slops and, stomaching no constraint,
Proceeded to swill
The seven troughed seas and every earthquaking
continent.

Question by American Noodle: Y is Fox News afraid to criticize China for trying to hack into US military computers = owners live in China?
From Mike Mount
CNN

WASHINGTON (CNN) — The Chinese military continues to increase spending on efforts to break into U.S. military computer systems, expand its Navy, and invest in intercontinental nuclear missiles and weapons to destroy satellites, according to the latest U.S report on China’s military power.
———————————–

By ADAM ENTOUS

WASHINGTON—The Pentagon voiced alarm over China’s military buildup, saying it was expanding its advantage over Taiwan and investing heavily in ballistic and cruise missile capabilities that could one day pose a challenge to U.S. dominance in the western Pacific.

In its annual report to Congress on Chinese military capabilities, the Pentagon also cited China’s advances in electronic warfare. The U.S. government has been the target of cyber intrusions the report says appear to have originated in China and aimed to steal military secrets. “These intrusions focused on exfiltrating information, some of which could be of strategic or military utility,” the report said.

Fox is owned by CHINA – because they are HERE in AMERICA and CHINA owns a LARGE AMOUNT of STOCK in AMERICA. That’s the extent of that.

Unlike the MAIN STREAM MEDIA – who refuse to carry ANTI-OBAMA stories… Fox will report “news”.

So many times… I’ll see a story on FOX… and tune to MSNBC or CNN – and there will be NO MENTION of it – FOR DAYS!

(And that’s only because FOX broke the story… and they HAD to cover it).

China’s government provides heat to the country based on the Yangtze River . . . if you are north of the river, you receive heat and if you are south of the river, you do not! It’s not based on actual temperature, but on mere location.

Loosely phrased, the country is split into “northern” and “southern” China.

This has an interesting slide show on China and includes references to books, etc. It uses the terminology “north and south China” in reference to the Yangtze River.

Good luck!
