What is the theme of the poem The Prologue?

1 Answer

  1. The poem’s primary themes include the oppression of women’s rights, patriarchal conventions, and the joy of writing. Although the poet has a great love for writing, the patriarchal culture prevents her from reaching the highest degree of excellence. She acknowledges that males are the ones who record the big historical occurrences and episodes, and she also admired those great authors. But that does not imply that a woman may never produce a work of literary merit. She acknowledges that her writing may be imperfect, but it does not mean she should abandon her desire to write poetry. She has always admired male writers and aspires to be acknowledged among them as a writer because she thinks there should be equality in the literary community.
