Sylvia Plath - words in the ether,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sylvia Plath (Spoken Word) (The spoken Word) (Audio CD)
Product details and other reviews list the poems and other readings in this selection, so I will not repeat them here. Suffice to say it is an invaluable and rare opportunity to hear Sylvia Plath reading her own work, or discussing its genesis.
Many poets do not read their own (or others') work well. Not so Plath.
Considering the mythology surrounding her life and early death, this is a must for all her readers, a chance to listen to the voice so early stilled and hear the words spoken with the expression the poet wanted.
It does not contain all the poems she wrote and misses out some of her her best, but it is worth the small investment for the general reader and an essential purchase for students of her work..
