Plath (1932- 1963) was an American poet, novelist and short story writer. Famously married to the poet Ted Hughes, sadly she was clinically depressed for most of her adult life, committing suicide in 1963. She is credited with advancing the genre of confessional poetry and is best known for two of her published collections; The Colossus and Other Poems and Ariel, as well as The Bell Jar, a semi-autobiographical novel published shortly before her death. In 1982, she won a posthumous Pulitzer Prize for The Collected Poems. The course will focus on Ariel while looking at other poems and extracts from her novel.
