Updates to Plath's library on LibraryThing

Over the last few months, I've been adding books and information to Sylvia Plath's Library on LibraryThing.

Having recently re-read Plath's Journals (edited by Karen V. Kukil, 2000), I added information about what books Plath was reading, and when. The information contained in the catalog includes the date read and page number in the 2000 Journals of Sylvia Plath (or, in the US, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath).

The best way to find these new books is to search for "Kukil" in the search box when viewing the cataloged books in library.

There is still plenty of information to add, but wanted to let you know that reconstructing her library is a work in progress. If you have information on titles not listed in the library, or information to add to the library, please do not hesitate to contact me. Sincere thanks in advance.

Peter, thanks for this. I'm one of those people who likes to check out what's on someone's bookcase-when I visit their home-and it's nice that i can do this virtually in the case of Sylvia Plath.

I notice there are hardly any history books listed here, though SP was very interested in history towards the end of her life-in her BBC interview with Peter Orr she mentions Napoleon, also the First World War, esp. Gallipoli. So I am presuming she had access to a decent library.
