Update on Prince and the Flur's

Sylvia Plath fans booking tickets to New York to visit the Morgan Library may want to make other plans. Through Philobiblos, I've learned that Richard Prince is not in talks with the Morgan to donate and exhibit his collection. Bummer.

Last Sunday I met Sweden's Sonja and Florian Flur in Winthrop and toured a selection of Plath sites in Winthrop, Wellesley, Jamaica Plain and Boston. We had a beautiful day, just as Plath described in her journal on March 9, 1959 - the day she and Ted Hughes visited Winthrop. At the grave of Otto Plath, we compared Plath's writing in three separate pieces: her journal, the poem "Electra on Azalea Path", and in The Bell Jar. It was a very memorable day.
