Summary
Slyvia Plath's status as a major American poet has been obscured by her reputation as a martyr, a suicide, a victimized women in whose tragic career death finally triumphed over life. The television program examines this controversial poet and the creative intensity with which she used her poems to confront her experiences as a women and an artist. Other writers, scholars and friends probe the relationship between her psychological conflicts and their embodiment in her highly charged verse. Judith Kroll discusses the importance of myth in Plath's poetry. Others emphasize her craft, noting her close attention to rhythm and rhyme, to carefully chosen imagery and deliberate use of sound, repetition and pattern. The program intercuts documentary and archival footage and stark, surreal and stylized visualizations of Plath's imaginative vision
