This book explores the poetry of Sylvia Plath, examining the work in light of its mythological context. The book looks at Plath's work as a part of a larger pantheon of female poets, including such writers as Emily Dickinson and Maya Angelou. It also considers Plath's unique voice and examines the ways in which her poetry explores the dynamics of love, loss, and self-destruction.; 8vo; 303 pages.
