Sylvia Plath

Sylvia Plath, una de las grandes poetas del siglo XX, llega a la coleccion Poesia Portatil. Sylvia Plath es una de las poetas mas admiradas del siglo XX. Sus versos, que a lo largo de los anos han ido cobrando protagonismo especialmente despues de que se quitara la vida a los treinta anos, son un intento de expresar su desesperacion y su obsesion por la muerte. Sus poemas se pueden considerar en gran parte autobiograficos y exploran su angustia mental, su problematico matrimonio con el tambien poeta Ted Hughes y los conflictos sin resolver con sus padres, asi como la vision que tenia de ella misma. Tanto ella como su obra se ha ido perfilando hasta el dia de hoy como uno de los grandes iconos del feminismo, y su poesia -en especial El coloso y el postumo Ariel-, como objetos adorados, valiosas pruebas de que Sylvia Plath fue una de las grandes figuras de la literatura del pasado siglo. Despues de mas de cincuenta anos de ser escritos, sus versos todavia contienen toda su intensidad, todo su dolor y toda su belleza. Entonces el cielo y yo conversamos abiertamente. Y seguro que sere mas util cuando al fin me tienda para siempre: Entonces quiza los arboles me toquen por una vez Y las flores, finalmente, tengan tiempo para mi.

Her poems can be considered largely autobiographical and they express her mental anguish, her difficult marriage to poet Ted Hughes, and unresolved conflicts with her parents, as well as how she saw herself. Both she and her work have been emerging as great icons of feminism, and her poetry as idolized objects; this is only proof that Sylvia Plath was one of the great literary figures of the last century. After more than fifty years since they were written, her verses still embody all their intensity, all their pain, and all their beauty. Then heaven and I had a frank conversation. I will surely be more useful when I finally lay down forever:
