Abstract
The main aim of this thesis is to present the Confessional school of poetry starting by introducing its historical and social background of the late 1950s and 1960s Cold-War America and continuing with the development of the Confessional mode in the literary history. Hence, it will be necessary to define the term and point out its central features. Apart from the theoretical part I will examine the four most prominent poets – Robert Lowell, Jon Berryman, Anne Sexton and Sylvia Plath. What is more, their best-known collections will be used to demonstrate and analyze the outlooks on Confessional poetry discussed in the first section.
