Tonight a friend passed along this wonderful rare 1961 BBC Interview with Sylvia Plath & Ted Hughes. Sylvia is one of my favorite writers, for her journals, short stories and of course her amazing poetry. She wrote with a raw honesty that could at times shake you to the core. With Ariel she had obviously reached new heights in her artistic talent and it’s sad we’ll never know what more she could have brought forth if her life’s circumstances hadn’t become too much to bear.
The interview is a true gift, a suspension in time and an amazing look into the life of an artistic partnership in love & art.
