THE PREFACE THAT WASN'T THERE,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sylvia Plath (Poet to Poet) (Paperback)
A slim book of 45 of Sylvia Plath's poems selected by Ted Hughes. They are taken from The Colossus, Ariel, Crossing the Water, Winter Trees and Sylvia Plath: The Collected Poems. Interesting to see which poems Ted Hughes selected, but disappointing in that Faber and Faber promises a preface in which the editors express their "personal and critical reactions". There is no preface and the poems are left to speak for themselves, which they are well able to do. The poems are arranged in chronological order of their composition rather than publication.
