• Richard Armitage reads Ted Hughes' letters

    40,175 views 9 years ago
    Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes were two of the greatest poets of the 20th century. They were married but their relationship was never easy. They split up and, after writing her best poems, Sylvia killed herself. She was only 30. Ted Hughes wrote to Sylvia's mother after some time from her suicide. Can you imagine his sense of guilt? How difficult could it be to write such a letter? It's extremely moving.
    The images are taken from SYLVIA (2003) starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Daniel Craig.
