Document Summary

The painting of medusa with her snake hair and death stare. One of the definitions is also a jellyfish- the tentacles reminded him of the snake hair of medusa. Medusa as a beautiful woman needs to be reclaimed from the patriarchal analysis. The speaker is very resentful of the mother because she s overbearing her. Massive resentment and anxiety over the overbearing mother. The fetus still trapped in this jelly like womb. If the child is trapped in the maternal womb something has gone wrong with this mother-child relationship. Mother threatens to raise the identity of the child/speaker. The grotesque mother is still the paradoxical aspect to this poem. There is nothing between us. final line/stanza. Affirmative resolution to the poem, rant but you and i are different. Open up the question of politics of mothering. The lens of difference and what that might mean. The mother is a metaphor- identifying femininity with motherhood.
