Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Ted Hughes's was published in 1998, it was greeted with astonishment and acclaim, immediately landing on the bestseller list. Few suspected that Hughes had been at work for a quarter of a century on this cycle of poems addressed to his first wife, Sylvia Plath. In , Erica Wagner explores the destructive relationship between these two poets through their lives and their writings. She provides a commentary to the poems in , showing the events that shaped them and, crucially, showing how they draw upon Plath's own work. "Both narratively engaging and scholastically comprehensive."--Thomas Lynch, "Wagner has set the poems of Hughes's in the context of his marriage to Plath with great delicacy."--

Synopsis:

"This erudite critical study...breathes new life into Plath scholarship."--, starred review
