Understanding the relationship between Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes adds a new dimension to an appreciation of the work of two prominent writers, particularly the work each completed during their marriage. The book offers different, but equally interesting, insight to listeners acquainted with the work of either (or both) of them and to listeners meeting them for the first time. Bernadette Dunne provides a smooth and even-handed narration, adding dimension and perspective to the analysis of the emotional lives of two intense and talented people. She is nonjudgmental and treats each individual, and their relationship, with respect. Dunne handles the excerpts from poetry, prose, personal journals, and letters as smoothly as the main text.
