Sexton und Plaht schrieben über die Unerträglichkeit der Existenz, und über die Faszination des mystischen Unbekannten, zu dem der Tod gehört. In Sextons und Plaths Werken ist der Tod ein häufiges Thema; Sexton legte ihn offen dar, bei Plaht bildet er ein Rätsel. Die Lebensläufe beider Schriftstellerinnen weisen zudem erstaunliche Gemeinsamkeiten auf, was once traumatische Erlebnisse in der Kindheit anbelangt, und daraus resultierende Schwierigkeiten im Erwachsenenalter. Wenn guy die Biographien von Sexton und Plaht betrachtet, so stellt guy fest, daß Todesfälle in den eigenen Familien einen Einfluß auf die Dichterinnen hatten. Diese Tode wurden auch in ihren Gedichten verarbeitet, wie das in Plaths Daddy der Fall ist, oder in Sextons the reality the lifeless recognize.
Anne Sextons Darstellungen des Todes verdeutlichen, daß dieser ein Teil des Lebens ist, die Banalität des Alltags wird hier zum Ausdruck gebracht. Das sinnlose Leben steht hier einem Tod gegenüber, der facettenreich ist, und der auf die Sprecherin der Gedichte eine reizvolle Wirkung hat, als daß sie sich eingehend mit ihm beschäftigt. Die verschiedenen „Gesichter“ des Todes sind auch bei Plaht ein wiederkehrendes Thema. Hier spielt der Suizid eine große Rolle. In dem Roman The Bell Jar wird über den Selbstmordversuch der weiblichen Hauptperson Esther Greenwood berichtet, die sich dem Leben gegenüber auflehnend verhält.
