Summary
  • An unique analysis of a crucial period in the life of this iconic writer, who tragically committed suicide just months later
  • Part memoir, part biography, this book focuses on the fifteen months that Sylvia Plath lived in North Tawton, Devon, from September 1961 to December 1962. This was an extraordinary time for Plath as she finished the proofs on her first novel The Bell Jar, and in the autumn of 1962, produced most of her dazzling Ariel poems. Elizabeth Sigmund recalls the year of her friendship with Plath from their first meeting drinking tea to attending music concerts together. Gail Crowther considers the impact Plath's domestic life had on her creative work during this period, drawing for the first time on unpublished letters, documents, and previously unseen resources from a wide range of archives in the UK, US, and Canada. What emerges is a unique and industrious picture of Plath as she settled into town life, forging new friendships, giving birth to her second child, decorating her new home, and producing some of the most memorable and powerful poetry of the 20th century.--From back cover
