Biography

Sylvia Plath (October 27, 1932 – February 11, 1963) was an American poet, novelist, short story writer, and essayist.

Plath was married to fellow poet Ted Hughes, with whom she had two children, Frieda and Nicholas. She had suffered from depression throughout her life, surviving numerous suicide attempts, but finally ended her life in 1963. Her last work, ‘Ariel’ is often considered to be her best work. She won the Pulitzer Prize posthumously, in 1982.

    well i can see above that people have been succesfully scrobbling her, but my point basicly was that she isn't a musician. soon last.fm will be making charts of books too? whatever. i was searching information for my essay of her, so that's why i stopped by.

    um, because you can scrobble plays of her a.) reading or b.) readings of her work. that was douchey, but I am trying to explain this to you.
