Your use of z as variable makes me suspect you are using Newton-Raphson 
for complex-valued functions of a complex variable.

If so, the issue is what you mean by "plotting" the function!  There are 
many possible representations.  David Park's Cardano3 package makes 
possible a number of these representations.

If, though, your variable is real, then are you asking not for a plot of 
the function itself, but rather the related plot showing the 
Newton-Raphson iterates?
