Sylvia Plath is more than seduction, more than suicide. Fifty years after her death, her writing still startles and stuns readers. In 3 sessions over 3 weeks, we’ll study her journals, poetry, and life. Each session will offer both a discussion of her life with writing prompts drawn from her work. In the first half hour, the foundational information about her will be presented, and in the second half hour, participants will respond in small groups to questions that emerge from her work. In the third half hour, participants will write in response to prompts. The writing generated from the study of Plath’s work will help participants investigate the writing and lessons from her life but will not be workshopped.
A free copy of The Collected Poems will be available at Kenton and Troutdale libraries after you sign up.
