An artist's relationship with her work-though she is disappointed in her unrevised writing, the poem conveys a lot more emotion than mere dislike (b). through the metaphor, the speaker shows how a writer views her work as part of herself, that she has affection (11) for it and an innate drive to improve and take care of it, like a mother would a child. though the poem does suggest a work can always undergo more and more revision and still not be perfect, this is not the overall purpose of the poem (c). the harsh critics are referred to, but they are not the focus of the poem (d). the hardships of motherhood (e) are implied only tangentially through the discussion of the poems main topic, the artists relationship with her work.
