Sylvia Plath's famous collection, as she intended it. When Sylvia Plath died, she not only left behind a prolific life but also her unpublished literary masterpiece, Ariel. When her husband, Ted Hughes, first brought this collection to life, it garnered worldwide acclaim, though it wasn't the draft Sylvia had wanted her readers to see. This facsimile edition restores, for the first time, Plath's original manuscript -- including handwritten notes -- and her own selection and arrangement of poems. This edition also includes in facsimile the complete working drafts of her poem "Ariel," which provide a rare glimpse into the creative process of a beloved writer. This publication introduces a truer version of Plath's works, and will no doubt alter her legacy forever.This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more.

I cannot exactly describe what I felt throughout the reading of this collection of poems. Poetry for me is something that cannot be dissected or thoroughly analyzed. Well, of course they can. But I think that poems have a raw beauty that does not have to be dis-constructed in order to be understood ...

I found three poems in Ariel that are worthy of comment here. The following is an article I wrote on the publication of this restored edition.http://mewlhouse.hubpages.com/hub/Three-Decent-Poems-by-Sylvia-Plath
