  • Mirror Sylvia Path Analysis

    Sylvia Path’s poem “Mirror” is about a woman maturing with time, and the mirror is the self-reflecting proof to her into finding the truth.

  • The Mirror In Toni Morrison's Song Of Solomon

    Rumored to bring seven years of bad luck upon breaking, a mirror allows the reflection of oneself to be seen.
