Who Likes Sylvia Plath?

  1. Dec 5, 2006 #1
    I loved her book The Bell Jar. Unfortunately she committed suicide like Virginia Woolf. Any feminists here, or any critics who do not like Sylvia Plath?

    I don't recall how Woolf committed suicide, can you refresh me on this?

    Plath gassed herself. Woolf put rocks in her pockets and jumped in a river. I prefer Hemingway's method - messy, but less chance of botching it.
