Twisted. That is exactly how I would describe this short story. it is the perfect tale if you are looking for something dark and menacing, but you don't know much about the main character. I just wish that there were more details about the characters out their relationship. As you read the story, your heart strings will be pulled out...literally.

One of Plath's finest. She has clearly outlined the poignant situation women faced in her era.

I read this beautiful little short in Tricks, Mischief and Mayhem (which I have not yet finished) a while ago. The imagery this story gives is very vivid and I actually find myself thinking about it regularly.

Super duper short, first and foremost. If it were printed, it would be a few pages, tops.
Having said that, I really loved this little tale. Very well written.
