Plath's Path

Today is Sylvia Plath Day! I'll be the first to admit that I know very, very little about Sylvia Plath aside from the fact that there were some major tragedies in her life. She was a writer, and wrote many poems and works that went on to receive awards, and her style can still be seen in some of her children's works. Her death was surrounded with a lot of controversy involving her husband allegedly trying to control her estate for his own profit, but I won't get into that. Mainly because I try to make it a point to not talk about things I'm not knowledgable about. You can take some time out of your day today to read some of her poems, or study up on her history as an artist and what influence she had on that area of life.

Thanks for reading!
