Anne Sexton's language was simple, domestic; her imagery arresting; her subject matter urgent, shocking and exciting. She wrote about mental breakdown, sex, addiction, abortion - the other side of ordinary life. 'Madness' and its cultural meanings were central to her art as to her life; yet it is a bright, lucid and sane voice that resonates. Sexton's poems are accessible, moving and intensely honest. Her poems are brought together here in a diverse and powerful anthology spanning fifteen years of uninhibited writing.
