Overview

Writing Back: Sylvia Plath and Cold War Politics by Robin Peel

This volume explores the relationship between Plath’s writing and Cold War discourses and argues that the time (1960–1963), the place (England), and the global politics are important factors for us to consider when we consider the rhetoric of Plath’s later poetry and fiction. Based on fresh readings arising from new research, this study argues that Plath should not be depoliticized, and examines her writing alongside the discourses of the period as expressed in newspaper reporting, magazines, and BBC radio.
