The First Voice is a (presumably) married woman who gives birth and takes her baby home during the course of the poem. The Second, a secretary, has a miscarriage, not her first, and the Third, a college student, gives birth after an unwanted pregnancy, and gives the baby up for adoption. Many commentators believe that all three ‘voices’ echo Plath’s own experiences.
The piece lay practically undiscovered and unremarked for some decades and even now is very rarely performed, although it is now generally acknowledged as a minor gem.
