Good evening, everyone.

Today we're gonna look at the life and some of the works of one of America's finest modern female poets, Sylvia Plath.
At the time of her death in 1963 Sylvia Plath was on the verge of the critical success and recognition that she had sought for most of her life. Her first novel 'The Bell Jar' had just been published and the publication of her collection of poems 'Ariel' had just been agreed.
These poems, which were mostly written during the last year of her life, chronicle the traumatic developments taking place in her personal life and were to make for her a reputation as a first rate poet.
