Winter of Discontent

October 19, 2010

Here is a link to a video by the BBC called “Plath’s Winter of Discontent”.  It’s pretty short, but it highlights the time of Plath’s life that is considered to have been the most fruitful in terms of her writing (as discussed today in class).

Also, not sure if you’ve ever seen the poetry animations on Youtube, but there is one available for Plath’s “Daddy”.  All of the animations kind of creep me out actually, but it’s still pretty cool how they do them.

The first animation I saw was Edgar Allen Poe’s “Annabel Lee” and for some reason it creeps me out more than the Plath one.  Check it out if you’re interested:
