Sylvia Plath, Please Stop Haunting Me

You, Sylvia Plath, you taunt me—luring me into the throes of your twisted lyrical speech. Because when I run barefoot and the grass squirms beneath my feet and look up at the sky, all I see is glass, blue-tinted glass. And the world is just a mirror, a hazy reflection of what we are and what we do. Nothing is ever quite as it seems and nothing written can ever be as true as we see it—experience it, live it, hear it, taste it, feel it.

Seeing Sylvia Plath With New Eyes - Cultural Studies | Sylvia Plath | Scoop.it
"This year, as anyone of a poetic temperament cannot fail to have noticed, is the 50th anniversary of Sylvia Plath’s suicide. Her death occurred a month after the publication of her autobiographical novel, “The Bell Jar,” and not long after she completed a manuscript of her influential poetry collection, “Ariel.” Plath’s estranged husband, the poet Ted Hughes, published a version of “Ariel” in 1965, ordering and choosing its poems as he saw fit, assuring her posthumous fame — and directing the shape that fame would assume..."

New Biographies of Sylvia Plath

New Biographies of Sylvia Plath | Sylvia Plath | Scoop.it
“ Five decades after her suicide, two biographies re-examine Sylvia Plath’s life.” It is hard to believe that if Sylvia Plath had not taken her own life — in 1963, at the age of 30 — she would quite possibly still be alive today. Her rival Adrienne Rich, three years her elder, died just last year. But how could Plath live to comb gray hair?

Why Sylvia Plath Still Haunts Us | The Atlantic

Why Sylvia Plath Still Haunts Us | The Atlantic | Sylvia Plath | Scoop.it
“This is the light of the mind, cold and planetary / The trees of the mind are black. The light is blue.” That’s the Plath-world, freakishly bleak, exerting its tractor-beam fascination on American culture. Fifty years after she killed herself, we find her vital, nasty, invincible, red-and-white poetry sitting in a region of cultural near-­exhaustion. Her short life has been trampled and retrampled under the biographer’s hoof, her opus viewed and skewed through every conceivable lens of interpretation. A Massachusetts girlhood; a precocious literary ascent interrupted by an early nervous breakdown; a decampment to England; marriage to—and separation from—the poet Ted Hughes; suicide. In her lifetime, she published just one book of poetry (The Colossus and Other Poems), one novel (The Bell Jar), and a few stories in magazines. Upon her death, the bulk of her work—including the completed manuscript of Ariel—was still unknown to readers.
