Focusing on The Bell Jar, on Plath's twenty or so published stories, and on her fifty or so unpublished stories, Ferretter provides a detailed critical account of Plath's achievements as a fiction writer as well as close readings of the texts.

Just as the unabridged Journals reveal Sylvia Plath's ferocious drive and dedication to the written word, Sylvia Plath's Fiction: A Critical Study documents her struggle during the repressive 1950s to find the biting, sardonic prose voice of The Bell Jar. Luke Ferretter brilliantly traces Plath's apprenticeship from the age of thirteen to thirty, uncovering many unpublished short stories along the way in American archives. Every scholar of Sylvia Plath needs to read Luke Ferretter's ground- breaking work, the first serious examination of the riveting prose voice of one of the 20th century's most electrifying poets.--Karen V. Kukil, Associate Curator of Special Collections, Smith College With tenacity and clear-eyed scholarly authority, Luke Ferretter has gone into the archive and emerged with a systematic sourcebook for readers of Sylvia Plath's fiction... Adeptly drawing on and adding to the body of recent criticism that has enlarged our sense of the scope and complexity of Plath's creativity, this is a very valuable book.--Langdon Hammer, Professor of English and American Studies, Yale University
