Sylvia Plath (/plæθ/; October 27, 1932 – February 11, 1963) was an American poet, novelist, and short-story writer

Sylvia Plath (/plæθ/; October 27, 1932 – February 11, 1963) was an American poet, novelist, and short-story writer. In 1982, she won a posthumous Pulitzer Prize for The Collected Poems.

Ted Hughes as Sylvia Plath’s literary executor. When Plath committed suicide, she was still married to Hughes, though the couple was separated.

Sylvia Plath began keeping a diary as a young child. By the time she was at Smith College, when this book begins. Written in electrifying prose, The Journals of Sylvia Plath provide unique insight, and are essential reading for all those who have been moved and fascinated by Plath’s life and work.

On the World Socialist web site, Margaret Rees observed, Whether Plath wrote about nature, or about the social restrictions on individuals, she stripped away the polite veneer.
