Description

With this startling, exhilarating book of poems, which was first published in 1960, Sylvia Plath burst into literature with spectacular force. In such classics as "The Beekeeper's Daughter," "The Disquieting Muses," "I Want, I Want," and "Full Fathom Five," she writes about sows and skeletons, fathers and suicides, about the noisy imperatives of life and the chilly hunger for death. Graceful in their craftsmanship, wonderfully original in their imagery, and presenting layer after layer of meaning, the forty poems in The Colossus are early artifacts of genius that still possess the power to move, delight, and shock.From the Trade Paperback edition.

      • bioText:

        Sylvia Plath was born in 1932 in Massachusetts. She began publishing poems and stories
        as a teenager and by the time she entered Smith College had won several poetry prizes.
        She was a Fulbright Scholar in Cambridge, England, and married British poet Ted Hughes
        in London in 1956. The young couple moved to the States, where Plath became an
        instructor at Smith College, and had two children. Later, they moved back to England,
        where Plath continued writing poetry and wrote The Bell Jar, which was first published
        under the pseudonym Victoria Lucas in England in 1963. On February 11, 1963, Plath
        committed suicide. The Bell Jar was first published under her own name in the United
        States by Harper & Row in 1971, despite the protests of Plath's family. Plath's
        Collected Poems, published posthumously in 1981, won the Pulitzer Prize.

In such classics as "The Beekeeper's Daughter," "The Disquieting Muses," "I Want, I Want," and "Full Fathom Five," she writes about sows and skeletons, fathers and suicides, about the noisy imperatives of life and the chilly hunger for death. Graceful in their craftsmanship, wonderfully original in their imagery, and presenting layer after layer of meaning, the forty poems in The Colossus are early artifacts of genius that still possess the power to move, delight, and shock.
