The poems in Sylvia Plath's Ariel, including many of her best-known such as 'Lady Lazarus', 'Daddy', 'Edge' and 'Paralytic', were all written between the publication in 1960 of Plath's first book, The Colossus, and her death in 1963. 'If the poems are despairing, vengeful and destructive, they are at the same time tender, open to things, and also unusually clever, sardonic, hardminded . . . They are works of great artistic purity and, despite all the nihilism, great generosity . . . the book is a major literary event.' A. Alvarez in the Observer This beautifully designed edition forms part of a series with five other cherished poets, including Wendy Cope, Don Paterson, Philip Larkin, Simon Armitage and Alice Oswald.

  1. Ångrar mig iallafall inte.
    David , 18 maj 2015

    Så svårt att betygsätta poesi för mig. Dels då jag inte riktigt förstår den, men också för att jag är ovan vid poesi. Vissa säger att man bara ska känna på poesin, likt en konstföreställning. Men ändå så ger sig många på att avkoda styckena i boken. Jag tycker ändå mig ha fastnat för vissa favoritdelar i boken. Det är ord som berör, ungefär som en parfym som väcker sinnen utan ord. Rekommenderas. Om inte annat för att plocka fram då och då. Kanske läsa med någon annan?

"Sylvia Plath's last poems have impressed themselves on many readers with the force of myth. They are among the handful of writings by which future generations will seek to know us and give us a name."-- "Critical Quarterly""It is fair to say that no group of poems since Dylam Thomas's "Deaths and Entrances" has had as vivid and disturbing an impact on English critics and readers as has "Ariel." Sylvia Plath's poems have already passed into legend as both representative of our present tone of emotional life and unique in their implacable, harsh brilliance...These poems take tremendous risks, extending Sylvia Plath's essentially austere manner to the very limit. They are a bitter triumph, proof of the capacity of poetry to give to reality the greater permanence of the imagined. She could not return from them."-- George Steiner, "The Reporter"
