Product Description

Review

Working at the source, [Rose] transforms an existential dilemma (which is how most people read the Plath life and work) into a problem of knowledge. In a stroke, she redefines the debate...Her book is thrilling. -- Manchester Guardian --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

Offers an interpretation of Sylvia Plath's writing, claiming that previous interpretations - both feminist and psychoanalytic - have been too polarized. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
Jacqueline Rose thoughtfully discusses both Plath's work and life, while illustrating the complexity of the word 'truth'. Rose's work is original and brilliant and is an essential aid to those who study Plath's work and those who love her work.'The Haunting...' also includes an excellent bibliography.

Format: Paperback
I found this book a compulsive read, despite the fact that it is often difficult - but the general thrust of the arguments, and intellectual excitement, carried me along.

I would defintely recommend this book to people interested in Sylvia Plath and her work; interested in feminism; or in creativity and 'mental illness'.

This is a book that needs re-reading to fully understand the arguments within, but which is definitely very worthwhile, and unique, in its analysis and insight.
