Sylvia Plath

The house in London where Sylvia Plath died was once owned by William Butler Yeats. Plath and Ted Hughes both considered their discovery of the flat in the Primrose Hill district to be a sign of good things to come, though this would prove to be truer of their poetic careers than of their lives together.

Our favourite Barton quote: "No poem is easily grasped; so why should any reader expect fast results?"
