Published on Nov 8, 2012

A new Sylvia Plath, immersed in popular culture and proto-feminism, presaging the way we live now. Plath bridges cultures like the Isis who eventually became a beloved object of worship throughout the Greco-Roman world. Plath has become the object of a cult-like following, her grave a pilgrimage site like the sanctuaries erected in honor of Isis. She has become the eros and thanatos of her biography. The tension between her conflicting elements makes her a modern icon. Another biography of Sylvia Plath? a reader will ask. Yes, the time to define the Plath myth for a new cohort of readers and writers is now.
