Your Own, Sylvia: A Verse Portrait of Sylvia Plath - Stephanie Hemphill

I don't know how to characterize this book, except to say that it's perfect.


Heady, consuming, brilliant; written in verse; what better way to honor/write about the life of Sylvia Plath than to do it through the style of her own poems?
