Sylvia Plath irrevocably altered the landscape of poetry in the mid 20th century. Few poets have rendered such syntactical realizations of language combined with stunning emotional intelligence onto the page. In this celebration and resurrection of Plath’s indelible mark on the world of poetry, we’ll get to hear from scholar Amanda Golden on the relevance of Plath’s work now.
Amanda Golden is an Associate Professor of English at the New York Institute of Technology. She is the author of “Annotating Modernism: Marginalia and Pedagogy from Virginia Woolf to the Confessional Poets,” and will be discussing this text in recognition of the launch of the paperback edition. She is co-editor of “The Bloomsbury Handbook to Sylvia Plath” (2022) and is currently co-editing “The Poems of Sylvia Plath” with Karen V. Kukil.
