Synopsis

Sylvia Plath by Prof. Harold Bloom

Sylvia Plath's short life and intense poetry continue to draw considerable critical and popular attention. Among her more recognizable works are the poetry collection Ariel and the novel The Bell Jar . Her suicide and tumultuous marriage to Ted Hughes, as well as his choices in posthumously publishing some of her work (and not publishing other parts of it) add to the mystery of Plath's life, and are documented in this newly updated Bloom's Modern Critical Views title. This book offers readers fresh perspectives on a writer whose highly personal oeuvre continues to fascinate more than 40 years after her tragic death.
