really liked it
bookshelves: 2011, poetry
Read in September, 2011

While the notoriety of being Sylvia Plath's philandering husband initially tainted my thoughts, some of Ted's lines are absolutely amazing. It seems a bit churlish to write paeans to your dead wife without taking some responsibility. I have to admire Ted's ability to avoid responsibility and write his side to her.
