Sylvia Plath

Author Code: ASPL

Born: Oct. 27, 1932 - Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Died: Feb. 11, 1963 - London, England

Educated at Bradford Senior High School in Wellesley and Smith College, Plath became the editor of the college's Smith Review and in 1953 was awarded a position as guest editor of Mademoiselle magazine. An incident where she was left out of a meeting with her idol, Dylan Thomas, had a devastating effect on Plath and shortly thereafter she attempted suicide for the first time, by taking her mother's sleeping pills. She was admitted for psychiatric care at McClean Hospital and spent six months undergoing treatment. She returned to Smith and graduated with honours and won a Fulbright scholarship to study at Newnham College, Cambridge. In 1956, she met the poet Ted Hughes and the couple were married in June of that year. Early in 1957 they returned to the United States. Plath then taught at Smith College until the following year when they moved to Boston. She studied creative writing under the poet Robert Lowell during 1958. The following year they returned to England and in 1960 their first child, Freida, was born. Later that year, Plath's first collection of poetry The Colossus was published and was well-received. In 1961, she finished The Bell Jar, a semi-autobiographical novel which would be published in 1963. The following year saw the birth of their second child, Nicholas. Hughes had an affair with Assia Wevell and this led to a separation from Plath in 1962. Plath suffered continuously from depression and her physician, a Dr. Horder, prescribed anti-depressants for her, but unfortunately Plath had already reached the pits. On February 10th, 1963, she stuck her head in an oven and gassed herself. Her death was ruled a suicide. Plath had written poetry from the time of her early childhood and had produced numerous short stories before she entered college. Her other works Include Ariel (1965 Posthumous) and The Journals of Sylvia Plath (1982 Posthumous).
