…Ted Hughes was mentioned here a couple of weeks back, and while Hughes has an impressive body of work, one cannot think about him without thinking about his first wife, Sylvia Plath.  Plath’s life tragic death and all the intersections with Hughes are a story in-and-of-themselves, but of note to Plath and poetry enthusiasts is a new edition of Ariel, her master-work, which contains a facsimile edition of the poems. The book provides a glimpse of Plath the poet at work, and is worth some time for that reason alone.
