Sylvia Plath in Firsts

The May 2010 issue of Firsts: The Book Collector's Magazine, features a cover story on Sylvia Plath and Olive Higgins Prouty. The blurb on the website, complete with a disgusting factual inaccuracy, compellingly suggests, "Perhaps it is time to look at her work from a more objective point of view" Couldn't agree more, but you should start by getting the facts right!

I have a copy on the way to me, but thought I would pass along the heads up in case your local bookshop is a carrier.

Other new-old stuff:
Harold Bloom is at it again (would he do it one year in every ten!). This time he has reprinted Wendy Martin's 1973 essay "'God's Lioness': Sylvia Plath, Her Poetry and Prose" in The Taboo, part of Bloom's Literary Themes (pages 157-164). I do not think Plath will feature in the forthcoming Bloom's Literary Themes book on Doughnuts.

One year in every ten indeed...

He also fits the marble heavy definition as well.

I'm sorry, Mr. Bloom.
