Daddy is a poem written by American poet Sylvia Plath. It was written on October 12, 1962, shortly before her death, and published posthumously in Ariel in 1965. The poems implications and thematic concerns have been discussed academically with differing conclusions. The relative popularity of Daddy can be attributed to Plaths vivid use of imagery and controversial use of the Holocaust as a metaphor. Critics have also viewed Daddy as a response to Plaths complex relationship with her father, Otto Plath, who died shortly after her eighth birthday as a result of undiagnosed diabetes.
