I can't not get enough of Plath. She was certainly way ahead of her time and a true literary genius.Published 17 months ago by Lady Reader's Bookstuff
I enjoy Sylvia Plath's deep 'birds eye view' in her poetry. This volume is a good one, as you can feel her pain in writing it.Published on May 3, 2013 by Cindee Goodspeed
