History grinds itself into oblivion!, 15 Dec. 1999
This is, by everyone else's account, a tremendously moving tribute to the memory of Plath. However, it seems to me rather more like an attempt to prove the critics wrong, and take away the blame from Hughes.
We read poem after poem of beautiful prose and moving occasion, yet the subtext is constantly asking us to believe that Plath was depressed period, that Hughes was supportive period, and ultimately, that Plaths suicide was in no way related to his Affair.
