Ted Hughes

Ted Hughes poem on Sylvia Plath published.

Thanks, Jay for the link. I remember reading and being fascinated by BIRTHDAY LETTERS when it was released.

Grim. I read THE BELL JAR shortly after it was published. Still think of it as a strange, off-putting book.

Ron, I know what you mean. After I bought BIRTHDAY LETTERS (brilliant collection) I re-read her poems and found them intriguing but, as you said, off-putting.

I'm sorry to have read her son committed suicide a year or so ago.
