Sylvia Plath: Did you know...

Did you know that 55 years ago today, on 5 August 1955, Sylvia Plath and Peter Davison, by chance, met Irish poet Padraic Colum and his wife Mary at a bar in Woods Hole, Mass?

Colum's poem "The Book of Kells" appeared in the July 1955 number of The Atlantic. Plath's "Circus in Three Rings" appeared in the August issue (pictured here).

Yet another one of their mystic community! Colum knew Yeats, Lady Gregory, and some of the Golden Dawn gang. He was big on returning to his Celtic roots.
