Description

Sylvia Plath's short life and intense poetry continue to draw considerable critical and popular attention. Among her more recognizable works are the poetry collection ""Ariel"" and the novel ""The Bell Jar"". Her suicide and tumultuous marriage to Ted Hughes, as well as his choices in posthumously publishing some of her work (and not publishing other parts of it) add to the mystery of Plath's life, and are documented in this newly updated ""Bloom's Modern Critical Views"" title. This book offers readers fresh perspectives on a writer whose highly personal oeuvre continues to fascinate more than 40 years after her tragic death.

Review quote

"The accounts offer students an opportunity to absorb serious analytical styles." ..."excellent critical guide sets edited by Harold Bloom...recommended picks for audiences of young adults studying literature." "A publishing venture almost without precedent both in its scope and in the fact that it is guided by a single critical intelligence." "This collection of previously published essays, edited by the distinguished literary scholar Harold Bloom, is an excellent addition to the Wells critical canon." "Harold Bloom adds some fantastic critical literary guides, providing interpretations and issues that should reach a wide audience from adults to young adults at the high school and college levels."
