it was amazing
Read in January, 2008

I was amazed to find out that there was a collection of some of Sylvia's short stories. Her fiction writing is so unlike her poetry, novel, and journal writings that one might easily forget that this is Plath. There are tell-tale signs that this is Sylvia, still; such as word-choice, which Sylvia has stock words and phrases that set her apart from the rest. People forget that her short story writing is what jumpstarted her career as a writer, and it's easy to see why in this collection. I highly encourage others to read this, even if they're not Plath fans; there is something here for everyone to enjoy.
