Abstract:

This volume is a biography of American poet, novelist and short story writer, Sylvia Plath (1932-1963). The author's account of Plath's life and death reveals her roles as a girl, woman, wife, mother, and author. A writer from a very young age, Plath endures the death of her father at a young age. Throughout high school and college, Sylvia continues to write and excel in school. After a summer internship in New York City, Sylvia attempted suicide for the first time. This would be one of many hardships she would endure: depression, shock treatments, rejection from publishes, and, perhaps worse, the infidelity of her husband, Ted Hughes, who she believed she would have a happy life with.
