A Feminist critique : the value of a body
The poem, "The Bog Queen" by Seamus Heaney is one that, through rhetorical tools of personification, communicates the role of the female body in the later years. While the poem can be seen as a literal illustration of the decay of nature as a reflection of the influences of society's wasteful actions toward natural resources, it is also a depiction of a society heavily dependent on women as objects of sexual desire.
