SYLVIA PLATH READS

by | Read by Sylvia Plath

Poetry & Drama • .75 hr. • Unabridged • © 1960

Sylvia Plath ended her own life in 1963, and her reputation as a poet rests on the publication of three slim volumes of poetry. This program includes 22 poems, including "The Moon Was a Fat Woman Once" and "The Ghost's Leavetaking." Plath's voice was as I expected: sharp and intense. She reads her stormy poems with a precise pronunciation that emphasizes their emotions and the rhythms. Unfortunately, she does not identify any of the poems, nor does the publisher offer cuing information to help to locate a particular poem.
