Now available: Janet Badia's Sylvia Plath and the Mythology of Women Readers



Congratulations to Janet Badia, whose book Sylvia Plath and the Mythology of Women Readers was recently published by University of Massachusetts Press.

You can purchase the book from Amazon.com; UMass Press; Amazon.co.uk; and you can like it on Facebook.

The book looks most promising and I expect to review it on this blog before too long. Chapters include:


  • Introduction: "There Is No Such Thing as a Death Girl": Literary Bullying and the Plath Reader;
  • "Dissatisfied, Family-Hating Shrews": Women Readers and the Politics of Sylvia Plath's Literary Reception; 
  • "Oh, You Are Dark": The Plath Reader in Popular Culture; "We Did Not Wish to Give the Impression": Plath Fandom and the Question of Representation;
  • "A Fiercely Fought Defense": Ted Hughes and the Plath Reader; and
  • Conclusion: "I Don’t Mean Any Harm": Frieda Hughes, Plath Readers, and the Question of Resistance.
