    DescriptionUpon the publication of her posthumous volume of poetry, "Ariel", in the mid-1960s, Sylvia Plath became a household name. Readers may be surprised to learn that the draft of "Ariel" left behind by Sylvia Plath when she died in 1963 is different from the volume of poetry eventually published to worldwide acclaim. This facsimile edition restores, for the first time, the selection and arrangement of the poems as Sylvia Plath left them at the point of her death. In addition to the facsimile pages of Sylvia Plath's manuscript, this edition also includes in facsimile the complete working drafts of the title poem "Ariel" in order to offer a sense of Plath's creative process, as well as notes the author made for the BBC about some of the manuscript's poems.

    Review quote
    "'It is impossible not to welcome this lovingly produced volume; its facsimile pages add an extra dimension to the vividness and vigour of Plath's unique poetic voice.' Erica Wagner 'We are forced by this new Ariel to stop and reacquaint ourselves with the unassailable force that is Plath the poet.' Scotland on Sunday"
