Sylvia Plath

The Pulitzer Prize winner (1982) Sylvia Plath (1932-1963) was a confessional poet writing about deeper intimate subjects like her declining mental health, difficult childhood, and dissatisfaction with her domestic life. Plath’s poetry is highly feministic and portrays the position of women in the 20th-century. She wrote about her innermost thoughts and expressed herself in an unhinged manner. This makes her one of the most radical poets of her generation and after. Explore some of the greatest poems by Plath below.
