i hate the term "confessionalist" sounds like poetry is better and cheaper than therapy.
plath rules! i love her poems. even if they're not understandable at times, her images are a-bombs for the mind. the one thing i hate are recordings of her reciting her own poetry. so serious!
anyway, she's so much better than her dork husband ted hughes (who was college buddy buddy with the other dork harold bloom)
there's an upcomming movie of her life strarring ms. paltrow.
