These journals contain Sylvia Plath's opinions and not those of the publisher. Readers should keep in mind the colloquial meanings of words appropriate to the time period of the journals. For example, Plath used the word 'queer' to denote an eccentric or suspicious person, according to her annotated dictionary, and not a homosexual. She began keeping diaries and journals at the age of eleven and continued this practice until her death at the age of thirty

Ariel was the second book of Sylvia Plath's poetry to be published, and was originally published in 1965, two years after her death by suicide. The poems in Ariel, with their free flowing images and characteristically menacing psychic landscapes, marked a dramatic turn from Plath's earlier Colossus poems. From her mid-teens Sylvia Plath wrote stories, at first easily and successfully, but then with increasing difficulty as the demands of her real vision complicated her growing ambition to make a career as a conventional storywriter.

Plath's journals have been published before, but in a heavily abridged and problematic form. The frequent omissions within entries have been filled in, and whole regions of previously unpublished material - including two manuscript notebooks written between 1957 and 1959 (which were only unsealed by Hughes shortly before his death in 1998) - dramatically open up Plath's intimate world.

Sylvia Plath (/plæθ/; October 27, 1932 – February 11, 1963) was an American poet, novelist, and short-story writer

Sylvia Plath (/plæθ/; October 27, 1932 – February 11, 1963) was an American poet, novelist, and short-story writer. In 1982, she won a posthumous Pulitzer Prize for The Collected Poems. Crossing the Water and Winter Trees contain the poems written during the exceptionally creative period of the last years of Sylvia Plath’s life.

No other major contemporary American writer has inspired such intense curiosity about her life as Sylvia Plath. Now the intimate and eloquent personal diaries of the twentieth century's most important female poet reveal for the first time the true story behind "The Bell Jar" and her tragic suicide at thirty. They paint, as well, a revealing portrait of the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet whose stature has seldom been equalled."A revelation." The New York Times

This book gave me a better understanding of her illness, work, and life. I can relate very well to her manic depression or as it is known today as bipolar disorder. I love her poetry and her novel The Bell Jar.

I was extremely surprised with the depth of her consideration of the issues which she felt confronted her on a day-to-day basis for a young person of 18/19 years. She displayed in her journals a very volatile temperament in her mood swings -very conscious on occasions of her attributes (physical) and abilities (cerebral) and then again morosely cognisant of what she saw as her limitations (being a woman; having no wealth to support her etc.).

I haven't yet finished the Journals, but I'm very struck by the many references to suicide in her very early years.

She had a very considerable intellect which in the long run was undermined by the unequal conflict in her mind between the genuine appreciation of her own ability and, unfortunately, the greater doubt about her own worth.

The more I read about Plath the more utterly obsessed I become. I want to crawl inside her mind and think exactly how she thought, I want to feel how she felt. It saddens me, yet still amazes me to no end how such a brilliant and outrageously talented woman had to suffer such a harsh, lonely and tragic life. I wish I could save her.

This abridgment turned me into a life-long learner from Plath's life. Her uncanny ability to be introspective and honest and reflective was truly unique. Hughes choice for redactions and removals seem surprising, but I haven't actually compared the content with the unabridged version. Given that the unabridged is many hundreds of pages longer, I'm happy to trust that this volume contained the most poignant moments that we have recorded from Sylvia. It's not Hughes fault that we don't have her journals from around the time of her major suicide attempt, for example.

I would recommend this to any reader interested in building a reader/author relationship with a truly unique and precious soul who struggled to come to terms with her calling in life, her relationship to notoriety and fame, her relationship to work and men, her desire for contribution and competence, and her desire to fit in and become a more rounded and capable person each day despite her bouts of depression and frustrations. Even if one is not keen on poetry, Plath's reflections on life generally and work/writing/artistic creation more specifically seem to have broad application to any reader who is interested in a companion as he/she works through these large questions of life and meaning in the 21st century.

I have not finished this book but Plath's words are so superbly written that I wanted to to write a review. This book has become a haven of the mind for me recently. When I am feeling alone or "different" I read this book and feel so connected to Plath's words that things are easier to handle.
It is obvious in Plath's words that she was a highly intelligent women who admitted her weaknesses and was forever seeking the next experience to express and ponder on.
Such a wonderful read, I am so grateful this is available to us.

Not only do I love Sylvia Plath, but I love that's I got such a bargain on this book! For a penny I got to read all the magnificent things this sad beautiful soul experienced in her day to day life. The only thing I regret is not buying books off of amazon.

Absolutely love this. The fact that the journals are so huge as a physical book and can be condensed onto the Kindle is excellent because it's not something I would read all in one sitting. Wonderful insight into Plath from her college years onwards. A must have for die-hard fans.
this is exactly the book I expected, compact and in very good condition. I am very much looking forward to read it.
