Synopsis:

Anne Sexton's poems are brutally honest, often controversial, and always thought-provoking.  Her work continues to dazzle new generations of readers and listeners.

On this recording, made shortly before her death in 1974, Ms. Sexton reads twenty-four poems selected from different periods in her creative life, all in a dramatic, resonant voice that complements the deeply personal quality of her dark poetic explorations.  Ms. Sexton had a wonderful, unique literary vision, and she ranks among the great poets of our century.
