Sylvia Plath Info Blog: 5

On 27 April 2007, Sylvia Plath Info Blog began with a post that I hope has been enacted and kept up like a promise. At the time I started this blog, I was unable to update my website for Sylvia Plath, A celebration, this is, and I saw this medium as a platform to make announcements about new books, provide updates on the Symposium at Oxford that year, etc. Now, however, I cannot stop! Like the speaker of "Getting There":

"...and the train is steaming.
Steaming and breathing, its teeth
Ready to roll, like a devil's."

Thank you all for your encouraging and valuable comments, and for your visits over the past five years. Thank you also for the guest posts that occasionally appear here, too. If you are interested in such a thing, please contact me. This blog would never have survived with you, its readers and followers. Let us keep steaming.

And 77th Happy Birthday Warren Plath.

Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah! The place to go for all things Plath with one of the most dedicated Plathophiles I know. Thank you for keeping us all in the Plath loop.

Your work is invaluable to us, Peter.

This blog is the indispensable AGORA of Plathians/ Plathophiles/Plathologists.

Maeve, Melanie, Julia, and Kristina,

Thank you all for your comments - you are much too kind. These comments really capture the various ways in which Plath is a root to many words. I promise to try to never be a Plathhole.

Congratulations, Peter! I can only add my applause & thanks for your hard work.

Warren's birthday? Then it must be exactly 6 months until the 80th anniversary of Plath's birth :-)

Have a great weekend all!
