November 12, 2008 Sylvia
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.”

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:
Remarkably muscular for a poet, isn’t he?
