Bitter Fame:A Life of Sylvia Plath

Author(s): Anne Stevenson

Literary biography

Anne Stevenson's celebrated and controversial biography of Sylvia Plath gave rise to much debate when it was first published. Honest, outspoken and meticulously researched, it depicts the poet's conflicts within herself, as far as possible making sense of her tragedy. Now, reissued with a new preface, it provides a full context in which Ted Hughes's Birthday Letters can be measured and understood.
