Sylvia Plath by Harold Bloom

Sylvia Plath's short life and intense poetry draw much attention. Her suicide and tumultuous marriage to Ted Hughes as well as his choices in post-humously publishing her work (and not publishing other parts of it) add to the mystery of Plath's life, as does the fact that yet other work of hers was published after his death. Within this volume, critics comment on Plath's life and work, often arguing that her poems do not show a young woman headed toward suicide but instead show a vibrant, intelligent woman in love with life and becoming more at ease with her work.
