Review

"Revising Life" is a major contribution to Plath scholarship.

"New England Quarterly"

"[An] important, provocative, and often brilliant book.

Steven Gould Axelrod, author of "Sylvia Plath: The Wound and the Cure of Words""

"[A] book that is meticulously researched, clearly and gracefully written, carefully argued, and beautifully presented.

"New England Quarterly""

"This is criticism at its best, melding a quantity of factual information with Van Dyne's superb readings.

Linda Wagner-Martin, author of "Sylvia Plath: A Biography""

ÝAn¨ important, provocative, and often brilliant book.

Steven Gould Axelrod, author of "Sylvia Plath: The Wound and the Cure of Words"

ÝA¨ book that is meticulously researched, clearly and gracefully written, carefully argued, and beautifully presented.

"New England Quarterly"

Plath scholars will welcome intriguing accounts of the poet's composition and revising processes.

"American Literature"

[An] important, provocative, and often brilliant book.

From the Back Cover

'Providing a compelling argument for Plath's revision of the painful parts of her life-the failed marriage, her anxiety for success and her ambivalence towards her mother. The reader will feel tension in the poetry and life.' -Choice
