In an uncharacteristically hefty volume, this tome grants access to the private intimacy of a poet's correspondences. Plath's letters are almost more vulnerable outside the poetic mode, addressing her "Dearest sweetest mother" or detailing the successes and failures of the first meals post-op or just being funnier than you would normally associate with the poet too-often reduced to a caricature of  housewife angst. Plath emerges from these letters with a dearness and live-wire running through her life, all the time. With poems by husband Ted Hughes, a wealth of photos, and commentary by mother Aurelia Schober Plath.
