This took me quite a while to get through, although not quite as long as I thought it would. Sexton's poems are raw, immediate, and at times make for painful reading. Also, because they are so confessional and autobiographical, there are times when one feels as those Sexton is speaking in pointed code that will only be understood by those closest to her. Overall, it's an impressive body of work, and my copy of this book is now bristling with slips of paper marking poems I want to return to later.
