Something from Sylvia
January 4, 2011 § 1 Comment
I love Sylvia Plath. She is the one poet I continue to return to. I think that even though she is not considered a beat writer and that she is placed in the category of the confessional poets, I find her to seem very beat. This is a clip that is posted on youtube of her reading her poem Daddy. I love to hear her read this piece. I had never heard her voice before and I have yet to listen to the other recordings, but the powerful cadence of her reading has drawn me even more to this poem that I had never really connected to until now after hearing it read from the poet herself.
