Synopsis: The poems in this collection were all written in the last nine months of Sylvia Plath's life, and form part of a group from which the Ariel poems were chosen. Her radio play "Three Women", also included here, was written slightly earlier, in the transitional period of The Colossus and Ariel. "A book that anyone seriously interested in poetry now must have ...Sylvia Plath's immense gift is evident throughout." (Martin Dodsworth in the Guardian).
About the Author: Sylvia Plath (1932-1963) was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and studied at Smith College. In 1955 she went to Cambridge University on a Fulbright scholarship, where she met and later married Ted Hughes. She published one collection of poems in her lifetime, The Colossus (1960), and a novel, The Bell Jar (1963). Her Collected Poems, which contains her poetry written from 1956 until her death, was published in 1981 and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for poetry.
