Links, reviews, etc. - week ending 19 December 2009

Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But Plathing is so delightful,
And since we've no place to go,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

For In Other Words, the blog of the Toronto Globe and Mail, Judith Fitzgerald writes about "News of Hughes", a story about a recent Sotheby's auction of correspondence between Ted Hughes and scholar Nick Gammage (editor of The Epic Poise: A Celebration of Ted Hughes), as well as almost 400 rare and first editions. The little collection sold for £39,650 ($68,400).

It should be pointed out that Olivia Cole at the Evening Standard wrote about this first in "How Ted Hughes let his imagination sparkle through letters to a fan."

Amanda Golden passed on to me this link for the Sylvia Plaid coat. It looks like a straightjacket got into a fight with a kilt, some scissors, and a sewing machine, and besides, I am not certain this is a good color for me!

Whilst randomly searching "Sylvia Plath" on Google, I found this reading guide to The Bell Jar published by Faber.

Whilst randomly searching "Sylvia Plath" on blogs, I found this post by Amica Carmilla about an artist called Justin Fitzpatrick. Those artists out there might find these paintings very intersting. I think some of them are very interesting and thought-provoking. From a visit to Justin's website, I gather these (or some of these) are on at an exhibit called, Long Nights: A Group Exhibition, Open from Thursday 11th of December to Sunday the 25th of January, at William Angel Gallery, 1 Barry Parade, Peckham Rye, East Dulwich, London SE22 0JA.

Great picture, Peter, that's some amount of snow you get there!
I so enjoy your blog, have a lovely Christmas.

Thanks Marion! It was a great snow storm. Merry Christmas to you and your family, too!

The William Angel Gallery ? I'm wondering if this is actually someone's name (and a fabulous one, if so) or a play on the fact that William Blake saw angels in the trees at Peckham Rye (now, one of the least angelic parts of London, IMHO.)

Peter, I know exactly what you mean about that coat.

A happy and peaceful Christmas, all

Merry Christmas Peter.

Thank you for all the Plath updates throughout the year.

Great picture - today is the opposite it is a very hot 42 degrees celscius!

I forgot to ask - any news on when Ferretter's book will be published?
