Letters Home is a collection of letters written by Sylvia Plath to her family between her years at college, in 1950, and her death at age 30. Sylvia's mother, Aurelia Schober Plath, edited the letters and agreed to have the collection published by Harper & Row in 1975.
Letters Home contains an introduction by Aurelia Plath, who adds bits of commentary and context throughout. The book provides unique insight into Sylvia's mind, as her growth as a writer and as a woman is charted for more than a decade.
Famous quotes containing the word letters:
“There are other letters for the child to learn than those which Cadmus invented. The Spaniards have a good term to express this wild and dusky knolwedge, Grammatica parda, tawny grammar, a kind of mother-wit derived from that same leopard to which I have referred.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
