I have a vivid memory of reading about her suicide and of the complexities that were revealed between Ted Hughes, his family (particularly his sister) and her relationship with her own parents. They still fascinate, after all those years!
I'm re-reading "The Bell Jar" and am mightily impressed by her talent and honesty.
And, no matter how hard I try, I do not much care for Ted-which really annoyed the English lecturer when I was studying for my teaching diploma.
I've written articles about their complicated marriage, and the reactions from feminists; and muh remains quite hearbreaking.
I add this book to my growing pile.

Having just read The Bell Jar, this collection of articles about Sylvia Plath filled in the picture and answered some questions.
Well worth a read.
