Plath: Poems
Plath: Poems | Sylvia Plath
14 posts | 5 read | 2 reading | 12 to read
Sylvia Plath's tragically abbreviated career as a poet began with work that was, in the words of one of her teachers, Robert Lowell, "formidably expert." It ended with a group of poems published after her suicide in 1963 which are, in the nakedness of their confessions, in their black humor, in their ferocious honesty about what people do to one another and to themselves, among the most harrowing lyrics in the English language - poems in which a magnificent, exquisitely disciplined literary gift has been brought to bear upon the unbearable. In these transfiguring poems, Plath managed the rarest of feats: she changed the direction and orientation of an art form.

May 25 1999.
I remember the day I checked out a book from the library and got a receipt instead of a card. I was not happy 😅

...The psychological pain of awaking in the early morning, the sting of returning to consciousness after the bliss of sleep...

I can‘t relate to that feeling at all! 😂⏰

Little poppies, little hell flames,
Do you do no harm?
You flicker. I cannot touch you.
I put my hands among the flames. Nothing burns

Do you read poetry? Who is one of your favorites?

Owl

Clocks belled twelve. Main street showed otherwise
Than its suburb of woods : nimbus—-
Lit, but unpeopled, held its windows
Of wedding pastries,

Diamond rings, potted roses, fox-skins
Ruddy on the wax mannequins
In a glassed tableau of affluence.
From deep-sunk basements ...
