Being an avid reader of online discussions articles and interviews regarding feminism I stumbled upon the name Sylvia Plath several times Because of this I picked up The Bell Jar as I wanted to find out about this ever important authoress of the 20th century Unfortunately I did not get far ahead into the book I hope to be able to read it next year When we were assigned to read a novel written in verse in my Independent Reading Class I noticed Your Own Sylvia A Verse Portrait of Sylvia Plath a book in poems detailing Plath s life from birth until her descent into depression and her eventual untimely death I immediately picked it up as the name on the cover reminded me that I made it a challenge of mine to learn about Plath Perhaps it was foolish of me to think this way but for almost the entire book I thought that the people close to Sylvia wrote poems about her and the author s name on the book was just that of a woman who compiled the poems together As it turns out this was obviously not the case Stephanie Hemphill did extensive research on Plath and was able to write various poems from different perspectives from her mother to her neighbor her therapist and some of her boyfriends all centering around Plath Stephanie Hemphill is definitely a talented poetess and I find it absolutely astonishing how she was able to enter the minds of so many people who affected Sylvia some of them who died decades ago Although I could never fully grasp what went on inside Sylvia Plath s mind I think that this book makes for the perfect introduction into learning about her I now feel compelled than ever before to begin reading her own works

Your Own Sylvia A Verse Portrait of Sylvia Plath review ✓ 3 On a bleak February day in 1963 a young American poet died by her own hand and passed into a myth that has since imprinted itself on the hearts and minds of millions She. So good So so so good I thought I would be at a disadvantage because shame on me BA English MS Library Science all I knew about Sylvia Plath was that she wrote poetry wrote something called The Bell Jar which I was fairly certain now confirmed was depressing and that she killed herself This book however is a great introduction into the world of Sylvia Plath The author took true events from Sylvia s life and wrote fictionalized accounts of them in verse it makes sense when you see the book There are footnotes at the end of each poem shedding some insight on the incident described or adding a odd anecodte about Plath like she and her husband used a Ouija board to help them pick lotto numbersThis book is a must read for Plath virgins such as myself and as a companion to the seasoned Plath studentsAs an aside I find it loathesome that Sylvia s literary estate was controlled by her sister in law a woman who hated Sylvia after Sylvia s death What is that all about And why did it take her estranged husband 4 days to claim her body
