10 years ago today... Ted Hughes passed away. 47 years ago today... Sylvia Plath published her short story "The Perfect Place" in the women's magazine My Weekly . The working title for this story was "The Lucky Stone", and typescripts are held by both the Moritmer Rare Book Room at Smith College and the Robert W. Woodruff Library at Emory University. This was the last short story that we know of that Plath published in her lifetime. Irralie Doel and I spoke about this story on 28 October 2007 at the Sylvia Plath 75th Year Symposium at Oxford. To read more about the story, please see my paper "'I should be loving this': Sylvia Plath's 'The Perfect Place' and The Bell Jar " in Volume 1 of Plath Profiles .
