Reviews

Heather Clark has given the story a new twist ... chapters on Hughes and the late Plath are excellently done. They document vividly and with scholarly authority how creatively involved the couple were with each other. * John Xiros Cooper, Notes and Queries *
The range of Clark's comparative approach is impressive... Clark writes with admirable clarity and perspicacity, and offers a study that is both broad and deep; it is testament to the poise, grace, and generosity of this book that it might work as an introduction to Plath and Hughes's work for an undergraduate or a careful refinement of an ongoing debate. * William May, English *
Clark's lucid and meticulous project traces the poets' careers through a series of shared concerns ... before exploring the way they continually 'remade' each other throughout the careers, and posthumously. ... The range of Clark's comparative approach is impressive here ... Clark writes with admirable clarity and perspicacity, and offers a study that is both broad and deep; it is a testament to the poise, grace, and generosity of this book that it might work as an introduction to Plath and Hughes's work for an undergraduate or a careful refinement of an ongoing debate. * William May, English *
a significant book ... Clark not only clarifies the troubled relationship between Hughes and Plath, but also advances our ideas about how to understand literary influence, especially among artistic couples ... appreciated by students of Hughes and Plath, who will gain myriad new insights about the two. * Diederik Oostdijk, English Studies *
