‘Two women reading’ – By Sylvia Plath
‘Nine female figures’ – By Sylvia Plath
The 40th anniversary of Slyvia Plath’s most famous collection of poetry, Ariel, commemorates another side of Plath’s creative abilities. The exhibit of her work includes a mix of pieces from childhood greeting card art to a more mature self-portrait in pastels.
The major archives for Sylvia Plath material at the Lilly Library includes letters, family papers and unpublished poems. They were purchased from Plath’s mother, Aurelia, and are the most visited among the Lilly’s many notable and famous collections.
