"Finally, the biography that Sylvia Plath deserves . . . A spectacular achievement." --Ruth Franklin, author of Shirley Jackson: A Rather Haunted Life
The highly anticipated new biography of Sylvia Plath that focuses on her remarkable literary and intellectual achievements, while restoring the woman behind the long-held myths about her life and art. With a wealth of never-before-accessed materials--including unpublished letters and manuscripts; court, police, and psychiatric records; and new interviews--Heather Clark brings to life the brilliant daughter of Wellesley, Massachusetts who had poetic ambition from a very young age and was an accomplished, published writer of poems and stories even before she became a star English student at Smith College in the early 1950s. Determined not to read Plath's work as if her every act, from childhood on, was a harbinger of her tragic fate, Clark evokes a culture in transition, in the shadow of the atom bomb and the Holocaust, as she explores Plath's world: her early relationships and determination not to become a conventional woman and wife; her conflicted ties to her well-meaning, widowed mother; her troubles at the hands of an unenlightened mental-health industry; her Cambridge years and thunderclap meeting with Ted Hughes, a marriage of true minds that would change the course of poetry in English; and much more.
Clark's clear-eyed portraits of Hughes, his lover Assia Wevill, and other demonized players in the arena of Plath's suicide promotes a deeper understanding of her final days, with their outpouring of first-rate poems. Along with illuminating readings of the poems themselves, Clark's meticulous, compassionate research brings us closer than ever to the spirited woman and visionary artist who blazed a trail that still lights the way for women poets the world over.
Two awesome and interesting WordPress query strings for browsing websites:
- Example: https://ma.tt/?orderby=modified (Today, this indicates that for his 37th birthday post, Matt apparently went back and made a few tweaks/updates to some prior birthday posts.)
- Example: https://ma.tt/?orderby=comment_count
These could be used in combination with a
/feed/ path to get an update of a WordPress site, potentially for updating posts within one’s digital garden and distributing as a feed.
A lot of it depends on what you what to do with it—which features and functionalities. Hopefully one or even a few of the plugins with minimal configuration will get you what you want.
Syndicating content can be a bit more involved, but only because there are so many methods depending on the level of control you want for the output and what sort of results you may want back from social silos.
Fell down a happy #IndieWeb rabbit hole today & wrote a colophon for my website: https://t.co/sY5HaJ4e7n Turns out I've been at this since I built my first website about Walt Whitman for an enterprising English prof in the late 90s.

I feel like comfort with being wrong is one of the most underrated part of language learning. If you want to work on writing or speaking skills you just need to get very chill about being extremely wrong and weird all the time.— Jessica Rose (@jesslynnrose) January 17, 2021
This is incredibly true. One needs to throw caution to the wind and focus on making as many mistakes as possible.

I always like to start the year by reading a biography; something about experiencing a life outside of my own to get perspective etc. But so many are...quite dry! So, what is the best biography you’ve ever read? One whose sentences stuck with you...— rachel syme (@rachsyme) January 17, 2021
