Overview

Sylvia Plath is widely recognised as one of the leading figures in twentieth-century Anglo-American literature and culture. Her work has constantly remained in print in the UK and USA (and in numerous translated editions) since the appearance of her first collection in 1960. Plath's own writing has been supplemented over the decades by a wealth of critical and biographical material. This introduction provides an authoritative and comprehensive guide to her poetry, prose and autobiographical writings. It offers a critical overview of key readings, debates and issues from almost fifty years of Plath scholarship; draws attention to the historical, literary, national and gender contexts which frame her writing; and provides informed and attentive readings of her own work. Accessibly written, this book will be of great use to students beginning their explorations of this important writer. This book covers: Life, Contexts, Works, Reception.
