This is a transcription of the journals kept by Sylvia Plath over the last 12 years of her life.

The following bibliography of Sylvia Plath is a list of articles, poems, and books written by the American confessional poet Sylvia Plath (1932–1963). Plath was primarily known for her poetry but has earned her greatest reputation for her l novel The Bell Jar, published pseudonymously weeks before her death. Plath published dozens of poems in her lifetime, including: "Daddy". The Munich Mannequins". Two Lovers and a Beachcomber by the Real Sea".

For the first time, then, we have a complete collection of Plath's diaries from the age of 17, through her college years and her stay in Cambridge, her marriage to Ted Hughes and the two years she spent teaching and writing in New England.

But of course, Sylvia Plath has always operated on another level entirely, and her journals prove nothing else, it's that Plath .

But of course, Sylvia Plath has always operated on another level entirely, and her journals prove nothing else, it's that Plath was in a category by herself. The newly-unabridged journals of Sylvia Plath are a fascinating and intimate look into her life and her mind - and at the same time, the reader is kept mostly at arm's length.

Beginning in October 1962, Plath experienced a great burst of creativity and wrote most of the poems on which her reputation now rests .

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

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.
Bremar
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.
allegro
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.
