Sally Read on Sylvia Plath – a podcast: ‘The Dark Night of Sylvia Plath’

Welcome to the first podcast brought to you by the Institute of Creative and Critical Writing at Birmingham City University.

I’m delighted to begin with this wonderful recording by the internationally-acclaimed poet and Fellow of the Institute of Creative and Critical Writing, Sally Read, in which she discusses the poetry of Sylvia Plath – and argues that, contrary to the common perception of Plath as a ‘confessional’ poet, her work is best understood through its movement beyond the self.
