I saw this in the LAHS and I have always been fascinated with Sylvia Plath, both her life and her work, so I decided to give it a try. It was really interesting to read about a person who write poetry through poetry. I think this book was actually fiction, though it was very close to the events in Sivvy's life, the author had to take some liberties to make the poetry work. Reading this has inspired me to read more about and by Sylvia Plath.
