Home on the horizon : America's search for space, from Emily Dickinson to Bob Dylan by Sally Bayley( )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

┬▒Zooming in on works of literature, art, and film, and back out again to take in the vistas of social history within which those works are situated, Sally Bayley's lyric meditation on American space is richly suggestive. Written with verve, and an admiration for makers as diverse as Dickinson and Dylan, Edward Hopper, Robert Smithson, and the Coen brothers, this is a book not only about architecture and landscape, but about daydream and desire. Its subject is the restless exchange between mind and place that has been and remains essential to imagination in America.? (Professor Langdon Hammer, Yale University)
Representing Sylvia Plath by Sally Bayley( )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Interest in Sylvia Plath continues to grow, as does the mythic status of her relationship with Ted Hughes, but Plath is a poet of enduring power in her own right. This book explores the many layers of her often unreliable and complex representations and the difficult relationship between the reader and her texts. The volume evaluates the historical, familial and cultural sources which Plath drew upon for material: from family photographs, letters and personal history to contemporary literary and cinematic holocaust texts. It examines Plath's creative processes: what she does with materials ranging from Romantic paintings to women's magazine fiction, how she transforms these in multiple drafts and the tools she uses to do this, including her use of colour. Finally the book investigates specific instances when Plath herself becomes the subject matter for other artists, writers, film makers and biographers"--
Eye rhymes : Sylvia Plath's art of the visual( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eye Rhymes provides extraordinary new insights into the mind of the young Sylvia Plath and the artistic processes she employed throughout her life." "Paintings, drawings, diaries, letters, and photographs from the Lilly and Mortimer archives published here for the first time, reveal the depth of Plath's engagement with the visual arts from childhood through to her years as a professional writer. The book offers a myriad of fresh perspectives on Plath's creative energy, revealing unexpected themes and ideas that first saw light in visual form, to be reborn later in her greatest poetry."--Jacket

The private life of the diary : from Pepys to tweets by Sally Bayley( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diaries keep secrets, harbouring our fantasies and fictional histories. They are substitute boyfriends, girlfriends, spouses and friends. But in this age of social media, the role of the diary as a private confidante has been replaced by a culture of public self-disclosure. 'The Private Life of the Diary' is an elegantly-told story of the evolution - and perhaps death - of the diary. It traces its origins to 17th-century naval administrator, Samuel Pepys, and continues to 20th-century diarist Virginia Woolf, who recorded everything from her personal confessions about her irritation with her servants to her memories of Armistice Day and the solar eclipse of 1927. Sally Bayley explores how diaries can sometimes record our lives as we live them, but that we often indulge our fondness for self-dramatisation, like the teenaged Sylvia Plath who proclaimed herself 'The Girl Who Would be God'
