Read full description of the books:
"'She steers clear of feminine charm, deliciousness, gentility, supersensitivity and the act of being poetess. She simply writers good poetry. And she does so with a seriousness that demands only that she be judged equally seriously... There is an admirable no-nonsense air about this; the language is bare but vivid and precise, with a concentration that implies a good deal of disturbance with proportionately little fuss.' A. Alvarez, Observer"
Reissue of Sylvia Plath's first published volume of poetry.
