    1. A thesis I wrote a few years ago looked into the symbolism and unconscious aspects of Plath's poetry. Now, although I investigated some of her techniques, I didn't pick up on her "painter's eye". Plath was quite an artist and this is the first time that I've seen her paintings in print (a pen sketch or two have appeared elsewhere, but I didn't make much of them). The essays in this volume analyse not only her sketches and paintings, but look at how she applied these techniques in her poetry by " [...]


    2. This book is ONLY for very hard-core Plath fans, and/or those who enjoy thoroughly "academic" writing. I'm a hard-core Plath fan, and I do enjoy "academic" writing, and even I was sometimesexhausted by this book. If you enjoyed the excerpt from this book in "The Unraveling Archive" I suspect you'll enjoy this particular book, but it is definitely much, much more detailed and, as I said, exhaustive. I was a bit amused by the idea that Plath was so annoyed by her "low" grades in her early college [...]


    3. If you love Sylvia Plath, this book is a wonderful insight into her creative mind, not only as a writer, but the visual artist. The biography goes into depth about her life events, interests, family, and how they shaped her artistic visions in both the written word and her visual sketches/creations. Imagine she was so proficient in both practices as a child and young adult that had she received more awards/accolades in art rather than in her writings during her school years, we may have heard of [...]



    4. A highly underrated work on Plath and her visual aesthetics and visual work, and it influenced and shaped her literary life and works.
