In honor of the 10th anniversary of Karen Kukil's Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
, I wrote "Books & Babies & Beef Stews
" for Plath Profiles,
an interdisciplinary journal out of Indiana University Northwest on her writing about food and cooking in her journals.
The piece is a personal response to the journals, which I continually return to every year for inspiration. You don't really know Plath until you've read these journals.
In further news, Sylvia Plath will be inducted into the Poet's Corner
at St. John the Divine in NYC next Thursday, November 4th. There will be a celebration featuring speakers like Karen Kukil and Paul Muldoon followed by songs by Ned Rorem.
