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:
“A man who publishes his letters becomes a nudistnothing shields him from the worlds gaze except his bare skin. A writer, writing away, can always fix himself up to make himself more presentable, but a man who has written a letter is stuck with it for all time.”
—E.B. (Elwyn Brooks)
