I have studied her poems throughout college. It is nice to finally have my own copy of her collection instead of constantly checking it out from the library. If you are just interested in her work this is a great book to see her progression, emotions, life, references, etc. all together.
Knew the name, but never read any of her work. Just finished The Bell Jar and had to read her poetry. All I can say is wow.
It really does not get much better than Sylvia Plath. If you are a fan, you will truly appreciate this collection of her work.
I bought The Collected Poems Sylvia Plath because I wanted to explore Plath's work. I don't remember reading Plath's work before, but several of the poems had a familiar feel to them so I must have read her at some point. As I read, I often felt an eerie connection to the words on the page. At times they felt like they mirrored thoughts and feelings I'd had about experiences in my own life. At other times I struggled to even make sense of the poems, but even those poems had a haunting essence to them. Plath used life itself to paint emotions and feelings and observations on the words she chose to put on the page. This collection includes a section after the main book of poems she wrote when she was younger. Those poems had a naivete that offered an unexpected rawness in their more traditional form and choice of words. I highly recommend The Collected Poems Sylvia Plath for anyone who is interested in Plath's work or in poetry in general. The Collected Poems Sylvia Plath is a great read filled with thought-provoking, emotionally challenging, and overall engaging poetry.
I love Sylvia's work! A tortured genius. Why she's not on BiPolar lists is mind-blowing. She seemed very BiPolar. Right down to
the part where she stuck her head in the oven.
Many of these poems really hit home! I love her works. Another star leaving earth too soon fly to the heavens to shine down upon us.
I can't believe it took so long for me to read her work.
I am one of those people who adores Plath's writing. The Bell Jar is one of my favorite novels, but her poems far surpass her gift as a novelist. Plath was a master with words and her poetry shows how she finely plucked each word from the branches of her mind to make some of the beautiful prose I've ever read. She is raw and unafraid in her poetry which is her gift to the world. We are allowed to experience these raw emotions as she did without hesitation which not many people are bold enough to do. I would definitely recommend this book, but if you are easily flustered or prefer happy poetry, you may want to read someone else instead. Perhaps ee cummings or Lucille Clifton-- their words are beautiful and open, but without all the self-loathing, anger and death talk. ;)
