Questa raccolta, nella traduzione di un poeta come Giovanni Giudici, testimonia del lavoro per molti lati eccezionale di una delle maggiori e, nondimeno, traumatiche, presenze nella poesia americana degli ultimi anni. Nel 1960 usciva la sua prima raccolta di versi, The Colossus, e nel 1963, l’11 febbraio, Sylvia Plath si uccideva. A cura del marito, il poeta inglese Ted Hu ...more

Per parlare di Sylvia Plath prenderò in prestito le stupende parole di Nick Mount, professore all'Università di Toronto, che nel 2009 fece una lezione su Ariel. Il video dell'intera conferenza lo trovate a questo link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yEZ6p.... Dura quasi 50 minuti ma ne è valsa la pena. Mount analizza la poesia di Sylvia Plath per poi passare a parlare della poesia lirica in generale, fornendo una toccante riflessione sul valore della poesia stessa. Qui sotto ho trascritto la par ...more

Disturbing, depressing & brutal, so typical of Plath's works.
Mike Narvaez
To quote John Green, “the poem is brutal and angry, and morbid and it involves a lot of corpses”. It sounds about right. It’s a little too pessimistic for my liking and I think it elevates suicide as something beautiful when in fact it isn’t.

Canto di Maria

L'agnello domenicale sfrigola nel suo grasso.
Il grasso
immola la sua opacità.

Una finestra, oro santo.
Il fuoco la fa preziosa,
lo stesso fuoco

che strugge sugna d'eretici
e stermina gli ebrei.
Planano i loro spessi mantelli

sulla cicatrice della Polonia, bruciata
Germania.
Loro non muoiono.

Incalzano grigi uccellavi il mio cuore,
bocca-cenere, cenere di occhio.
Si posano. Sull'alto

precipizio
che un solo uomo svuotò in spazio
i forni ardevano come cieli, incandescenti.

E' un cuore
l'olocausto a cu

Sylvia Plath is a poetic genius.
The poem Lady Lazarus is emotionally gripping with a freezing cold touch.
She feels a sense of responsibility for the Holocaust since her father was a former Nazi.
The words she uses express a deep guilt which tears apart her heart and mind.
It is very deep. It's one of my favorite poems because the level of guilt she feels for something she had no part in proves the emotionally instability a woman can entrap herself into.

da tulipani

Io non volevo fiori, volevo solamente giacere a palme riverse ed essere tutta vuota
come si è liberi, liberi da non credersi. La pace è così grande che abbaglia, e non chiede nulla, un’etichetta col nome, pochi aggeggi. E’ il finale a cui approdano i morti; me li figuro - inghiottirselo come un’ostia da comunione.
Miguel Vega
I really liked this. Plath has really cemented herself as an amazing poet and one of my favorites of all time. This poem deals with resurrection and the concept of being a phoenix, "Death is an art and I do it so well".

Dying
Is an art, like everything else.
I do it exceptionally well.
I do it so it feels like hell.
I do it so it feels real.
I guess you could say I've a call.

"Lady Lazarus" is a dark tortured poem written about 1962.

Bello. Compaiono spesso molti elementi naturali, fiori, alberi, ma quasi tutti sono immersi in un atmosfera fredda o comunicano inquietudine piuttosto che bucolica tranquillità. "Piccoli papaveri, piccole fiamme d'inferno, non fate male?" Oppure: "Il cielo notturno è solo una specie di carta carbone" Ogni frase è frutto di studio attento, niente nella metodologia creativa di Sylvia Plath è concesso alla creatività impulsiva, ogni dettaglio è lavorato in un complesso insieme che insegue la perfet ...more

Plath has lived a tough life and I think we all know that. But you can definitely see that through out her work. Like many other writers, Plath pours her emotions and her feelings, pours part of herself into her work and it's absolutely beautiful.

A complex and menacing poem - presumably about suicide, but at the very least about aging and death.

Enchanting but also, emotionally exhausting honestly. I would be in the middle of a poem and end up breaking down. Why, why is it so powerful to me? From cadavers and religion to sleeping pills and filial relationships, I cannot say. This book is filled with Plath's most famous poems and I admit that Years, In Plaster, and Tulips struck me home.

is it sad that I can recite this from memory?
Rawabi Alqahtani

There’s a charge for the eyeing of my scars.. and there’s a charge for the hearing of my heart.


This poem has always touched something deep inside my heart... my FAV of all time.

I tulipani

I tulipani sono troppo eccitabili, e' inverno qui,
guarda quanto ogni cosa sia bianca, quieta e innevata.
Imparo la pace, mentre si posa quieta a me vicina
come la luce su questi muri bianchi, questo letto, queste mani.
Non sono nessuno; niente a che fare con le esplosioni.
Ho dato il mio nome e i vestiti alle infermiere
la mia storia all'anestesista e il mio corpo ai chirurghi.

Hanno appoggiato la mia testa tra cuscino e bordo del lenzuolo
come un occhio fra palpebre bianche che non si chiude
