Like Fury... The Life, Love & Art Of Sylvia Plath

Sylvia Plath’s letters to Ted Hughes are the greatest literary love letters offered for sale since those of Robert and Elizabeth Browning in 1913.

Like those of the Brownings, the eight letters offered here, written between October 1st and 22nd, cover a relatively short period of separation during their relationship.

The significance of the letters is impossible to exaggerate. Nevertheless, it may be stated that the letters mark, in turn, their first separation since their marriage, the consecration of a new poetic and prose style, and the genesis of the publication of The Hawk In The Rain. These events and their record, covering scarcely more than three weeks of their lives, provide the backdrop for an unfettered insight into the minds of two of the century’s most talented and important writers.

Our new catalogue, Like Fury, offers for sale these letters, family copies of her books, and original inscribed photographs.
