Newly Discovered Ted Hughes Poem About Sylvia Plath

October 6, 2010

I just saw this NPR article about a Ted Hughes poem that’s just been found, written about the 3 days leading up to Sylvia Plath’s suicide. Apparently it is being published tomorrow, and excerpts of it have already been read on a BBC program by Jonathan Pryce (there is a video of him reading at the end of the article).

I don’t know about you guys, but it just kind of makes me feel weird. From what I remember about learning about Plath and Hughes (which was in high school, so I’m not sure on the validity of the info), they had a rather tumultuous relationship. This strikes a weird chord with me, but I can’t quite pin point it. Anyone care to enlighten me/share their thoughts?
