  • Basically, everybody should read this. I don't care if you don't like poetry.

    I paid a buck fifty for the paperback "Revised" edition (arranged by Plath's daughter Frieda in an attempt to be more faithful to her mother's arrangement, in contrast to the arrangement by Frieda's father, Ted Hughes), but this is a million dollar book.

    The poetry is rich in images, with ominous visions of Nazis and death sharing the pages with bees, puking babies, and other fixtures of domesticity. Plath is playful with language, but sharp and relentless in her deconstruction of the world around her. She does not give any illusion of her life as a mother and wife being a fairy tale ending; she readily admits that suicide is on her mind. So thickly layered are each of her poems, I will gladly reread them all a dozen more times to find more juicy double meanings and commentary tucked away in the lines.

    Some of my personal favorite poems were:

    Lesbos -- The kitchen is not a holy ground to Sylvia. She enjoys zero time spent with another woman, possibly the mistress who took her husband away, whose grating attitude makes idle chit-chat a living hell.

    The Applicant -- "First, are you our sort of person?//Do you wear//A glass eye, false teeth or a crutch,//A brace or a Hook,//Rubber breasts or a rubber crotch" This poem speaks for itself.

    Daddy -- Among the most well-known poems from this collection, it devilishly mixes childlike word play with black images of fascism, "The boot in the face, the brute//Brute heart of a brute like you". It reads like a scathing, adult version of Dr. Seuss. I love it.

    Just get it already!

  • Useful for serious students of Plath's work, or anyone who has fallen particularly under the spell of her most famous collection. It is interesting to see the volume the way she left it, with the poems in a different order and several other works of this period omitted, although it is not clear she might not have tinkered with the sequence and contents further before publication had she lived. As we have no notes regarding any plan or schema she had for Ariel, and her diary from that period was apparently destroyed, any further speculation regarding the structure of the book is pure conjecture. Frieda Hughes' 'Forward' adds an interesting new note to our general view of her mother and should diminish a bit her status as a feminist martyr, which is probably a good thing. I'm not sure that this volume adds much else to the average poetry lover's appreciation of Ariel, however: it isn't as if Hughes' reordering mangled the texts or destroyed some inner logic which had been present in the original typescript. Mostly, each poem stands on its own in either version.

  • This version of Ariel is restored to the way Sylvia Plath left it before her death. It differs from the earlier editions that Ted Hughes arranged and edited and it restores/replaces some of his additions and removals. It includes a wonderful and intricate foreword by Frieda Hughes, written personally and professionally (quite a feat.) There is a ferocity in these poems that wasn't found in earlier collections, and it's my favorite collection of Sylvia Plath's poems. We're lucky that her daughter is so carefully restoring the full Plath collection faithfully.

  • Saw this on an Instagram story, and I’ve been trying to hunt it down ever since. I work in a used book store, and have had my fingers crossed for a while. I eventually broke down, and messaged the person. They were kind enough to give me the ISBN! So so glad to finally have a copy of this, as it’s truly beautiful. The book is very well made, and the font is a reasonable size. A perfect gift for any lover of poetry or Sylvia Plath.

  • The Kindle edition seems to have some typos, as several sentences are repeated. I was disappointed that this edition did not include any interpretations of the individual poems, although there was a brief "about the author" containing less information than can be easily found online. Since Sylvia Plath was, famously, a confessional poet, knowing something about her life is almost essential to understanding her poetry. The main benefit of this edition is the introduction by her daughter, Frieda Hughes, who, though she was only 2 when her mother committed suicide, claims to have some memories of her, and sheds some light on the poet and discredits those who demonized Ms. Hughes' father, the poet Ted Hughes.

  • This is an amazing book. I'm very glad Ms. Hughes (Frieda Hughes) did this, because what Ted Hughes did was not what Sylvia Plath wanted at all, or else the manuscript would have been that way. I think that the poems are beautiful, and are written perfectly. It includes many great poems (i.e; The Applicant, Morning Song, Tulips, etc.) that show Plath's intelligence, but also her inner sadness, and misery that she was going through when she wrote these poems. This book also includes the real pages she wrote on her typewriter (They have her handwriting on them, and it's very interesting to see).

    My final comments:

    If you are going to buy Ariel, never buy the one that says "Sylvia Plath (Author), Ted Hughes (Editor)" or whatever it says that involves Ted Hughes. All I can say is avoid anything that has his name along with Sylvia Plath's, so if you want her journal for example, buy the one that I luckily noticed before I bought the one Ted Hughes edited, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath. Sylvia Plath is an amazing poet, and if you, for example, are new to her poetry, Ariel: The Restored Edition is the book to buy. I also recommend Anne Sexton, and Robert Lowell if you like the confessionals.

  • What can you say about one of the greatest collections of poetry by one of our greatest poets. Sure, she suffered from psychological problems which ended her life way before her time, but her language, insight into human affairs and lives has seldom been equaled in the art of poetry.
