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:
“In one instance, we understood that a woman was the post- mistress, and they said that she made the best one on the road; but we suspected that the letters must be subjected to a very close scrutiny there.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
