In a book that The New Yorker's Janet Malcolm called "by far the most intelligent and the only aesthetically satisfying" Plath biography, the poet Anne Stevenson narrates and illuminates the ways in which Sylvia Plath created her own legend in life and in poetry, one at odds with the posthumous myth that has grown up around her since her suicide in 1963.

I am giving up on this book. It is overdue at the library and I'm still only on p 100. It is just the same old story, from page to page, reads very dry. I'm going to check out her journals and the other books ( I think it is called Letters to Home) that Gary recommended. Thanks Gary. Teljes értékelés elolvasása
