The Light of the Mind: A Biography of American Poet and Novelist Sylvia Plath (1932-1963)

A biography of American poet and novelist Sylvia Plath (1932-1963) that emphasizes her literary development and her important place in American letters.

I am writing a biography of the American poet and novelist Sylvia Plath (1932-1963). Although several biographies have been published since her death in 1963, a definitive, critical biography of America's best-known, 20th-century woman poet still does not exist. Because biographies of Plath tend to be inaccurate and sensationalist, there is a need for an in-depth, meticulously researched biography that resists caricature and helps restore Plath to the prominent place she deserves in American letters. Sylvia Plath: The Light of the Mind will recover Plath the writer.

The Poetic Dialogue of Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath

My study is an exploration of the poetic dialogue between Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes. In the wake of the publication of "Birthday Letters," as well as the deposit of Hughes’s papers at Emory, it is time for a reappraisal of Plath and Hughes’s literary partnership, one which makes use of new archival material, new theories of collaboration and new voices in Plath and Hughes criticism. This reappraisal will reveal the extent to which Plath and Hughes engaged in a complex and continually evolving poetic dialogue about the anxieties of poetic partnership itself.

Publishing Collaborations of Ted Hughes and His Circle

To study the relationship between the British poet, Ted Hughes, and his collaborators during the process of publication in order to identify, analyze and document the profound (if often unconscious) influence these artists and artisans have on each other. These poets are interested in the additional nuances the format can give its reading. PI contends that not only the images and the thematic topics of poems and illustrations, but also the style in which they are executed, the paper on which they are printed and the very material in which they are bound are part of this developing "language".
