Letters Home reveals little
As Sylvia Plath's writing has inspired my life, I thought I'd delve into her emotions more by reading, 'Letters Home.' As the book reveals Plaths intense ups and down and intricate writing style, you still get a feeling that many of the letters are designed to cloak. They are all written to her mother, who seems to have published the book only to divert attention that she was an uncaring mother as percieved in 'The Bell Jar.' Many letters are written with such optimism, while the next are only unending perils. You are given no details what those trials consisted of in her life, and I found myself with more questions about Sylvia than when I picked it up. Nevertheless, it is a window (even if a small one) to Sylvia's soul and that much is appreciated.
