Letters, volume 1

November 14, 2017

Volume one of the Letters of Sylvia Plath has just been released by HarperCollins Publishers, an undertaking that The Guardian calls “tangled,” “fraught,” and “newsworthy.” This volume covers the period up to Plath’s marriage to Ted Hughes; a second volume is due next autumn.

The 1,424-page collection contains the full, unedited versions of Plath’s early letters (most from before she was 20). If that sounds daunting, Sarah Churchwell’s article in The Guardian may help.
