BBC 3 RADIO 3 HAVE COMMISSIONED THE STORY OF BOOKS TO PRODUCE A NEW DRAMA ABOUT THE POET FERNANDO PESSOA. MORE NEWS SOON!



Crossing the Water by Sylvia Plath

Regular price £11.00

Tax included.
Crossing the Water and Winter Trees contain the poems written during the exceptionally creative period of the last years of Sylvia Plath’s life. Published posthumously in 1971, they add a startling counterpoint to Ariel, the volume that made her reputation. Readers will recognise some of her most celebrated poems – ‘Childless Woman’, ‘Mirror’, ‘Insomniac’ – while discovering those still overlooked, including her radio play Three Women. These two extraordinary volumes find their place alongside The Colossus and Ariel in the oeuvre of a singular talent.
