The essential read for any fan and scholar of Sylvia Plath. This comprehensive edition of Sylvia Plath's letters is a work of immense scholarship and care, presenting a complete and historically accurate text of the known and extant letters Plath wrote to over one hundred and twenty correspondents, including Ted Hughes.

This edition reproduces previously unseen photographs, and a gathering of Plath's own beautiful line drawings taken from the letters she sent to her friends and family, which offer the reader generous insight into the life of one of our most significant poets. Sylvia Plath (1932-63) was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and studied at Smith College. In 1955 she went to Cambridge University on a Fulbright scholarship, where she met and later married Ted Hughes. She published one collection of poems in her lifetime, The Colossus (1960), and a novel, The Bell Jar (1963). Her Collected Poems, which contains her poetry written from 1956 until her death, was published in 1981 and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for poetry.
