This close analysis of Plath's reading and apprenticeship writing, both in fiction and poetry, sheds considerable light on her late work of the 1960s. Updated to further explore Plath's literary life, this study examines the aftermath of Plath's death on her work and her reputation as a writer, including the posthumous publication of her Collected Poems, edited by Ted Hughes, which won the Pulitizer Prize for Poetry in 1982. Plath biographies are also looked at along with Hughes's Birthday Letters together with a discussion and comparison of Hughes's and Plath's poems. A chronology maps out key events and publication both in Plath's lifetime and posthumously."--Jacket." ;
