"A vivid and, to me, moving portrait of a young woman who, carrying the full mixed cultural load of Americans born in 1932, as well as personal distresses and limitations peculiar to herself, (became) in ten driven years . . . the most ruthlessly original poet of her generation."--John Updike.

About the Author:

Anne Stevenson's recent works include Collected Poems and a volumn of critical essays in the University of Michigan's Poets on Poetry Series. She lives in England.

From Library Journal:

In her preface to this new biography of Sylvia Plath, Stevenson states that she intends to create "an objective account of how this exceptionally gifted girl was hurled into poetry by a combination of biographical accident and inflexible ideals and ambitions." Yet how can one be objective when one's aim is to explain "inflexible ideals and ambitions"? It is the very subjectivity that ultimately informs this book that is its weakest aspect. However, several previously unpublished memoirs by people who knew Plath are included as appendixes, and while they are not sufficient to make this a definitive biography (for which we will likely have to wait a number of years), they are interesting and make for a lively, if not altogether trustworthy, account of her life.
