"Plath's voice is lucid and precise, and the poetry is deeply intense in its reading and mood. The words combined with the voice render stunning images of the inner self and the creative energy of Sylvia Plath."
Leaving Early * Mushrooms * The Surgeon at Two A
. * The Disquieting Muses * Spinster * November Graveyard * A Plethora of Dyrads * The Lady and the Earthenware Head * On the Difficulty of Conjuring Up a Dryad * On the Decline of Oracles * The Goring * Ouija * Sculptor.
The charged imagery of Sylvia Plath's carefully crafted poetry strikes even deeper when heard from the voice of the author. Remastered using contemporary digital technology, these historic recordings were made between 1958 and 1962, when Plath was at the height of her tragically shortened career. They capture the striking clarity of her writing and the studied pronunciations of her voice, while illuminating her subtle, yet profoundly moving vocal inflections. Plath carries the listener into a dreamscape that mixes memories of beautiful lightness with the secret pain of dark and disturbing insight. (Running time: 50 minutes, 1 cassette) --George Laney
