The Journals of Sylvia Plath

Posted to What Are You Reading?

I read the Bell Jar years ago and forgot most of it.

Its funny to be reading the journals because I know her mostly through her poetry, recently, and don't think of her as a prose writer.

Wow is she lucid! And she reminds me of so many thoughts I have had myself.

Sylvia Plath is a wonderful writer. Honest, vivid and true. I stuck her picture on my wall.
