sisters & sparrows

Poetry. Photography. Life.

Sylvia Plath was a genius writer.  If you haven’t heard of her, skim-read this, and then get this book, and this book, and a few of her poems.  You might not like her, or the way she writes, but she definitely makes you think.

For instance, she once said:

“Kiss me and you will see how important I am.”

Look, you can see her thinking that in this photo:

There was a film made about her a while ago, which Gwyneth Paltrow starred in.  It was a brilliant film.

What a great red bike.  This shot almost, almost made me want to apply for Cambridge.  And look, here’s her and Ted Hughes (ie: the Iron Man, poet laureate ted hughes), being played by…

Yep!  Daniel Craig.  Look:

ted

Remarkably muscular for a poet, isn’t he?
