Book Description
The Review, Oxford, October 1963. Near fine pictorial soft covers with photo of Sylvia Plath on the front cover. "She steers clear of feminine charm, deliciousness, gentility, super sensitivity and the act of being a poetess. She simply writes good poetry. And she does so with a seriousness that demands only that she be judged equally seriously... There is an admirable no-nonsense air about this; the language is bare but vivid and precise, with a concentration that implies a good deal of disturbance with proportionately little fuss"

Her most well-known novel is The Bell Jar, which was partly based on her life. She married another famous poet, Ted Hughes. She died by suicide in 1963
