Icon220 Seeing Sylvia Plath with New Eyes

This year, as anyone of a poetic temperament cannot fail to have noticed, is the 50th anniversary of Sylvia Plath’s suicide. Her death occurred a month after the publication of her autobiographical novel, “The Bell Jar,” and not long after she completed a manuscript of her influential poetry collection, “Ariel.” Plath’s estranged husband, the poet Ted Hughes, published a version of “Ariel” in 1965, ordering and choosing its poems as he saw fit, assuring her posthumous fame — and directing the shape that fame would assume.
