Sylvia Plath: Poems Selected by Ted Hughes (1985)
by Sylvia Plath
No current Talk conversations about this book.
As much as I want to like the poetry of Plath I just don't - I don't really see it as being a particularly good example of the craft, and believe much of the reverence of her writing is more to do with a fascination with her doomed life than her poetry. That said, the book itself is well organised and lovely to read - a triumph of form over function.
depressing as they are i really enjoy her work
In this series, a contemporary poet advocates a poet of the past or present whom they have particularly admired. By their selection of verses and by the personal and critical reactions they express, the selectors offer intriguing insight into their own work.

Critical reading unlocked some enjoyment from Ariel and Daddy for me (although I still think the latter is a bit cheap). Beyond those... I think that's about it. ( )
