Using a postfeminist, poststructuralist approach, the author offers a new study of Sylvia Plath's life and work that rejects the standard myths of Plath as Doomed Poet and Deprived Woman. Bassnet demonstrates that the many voices and contradictions in Plath's poetry and life negate attempts by critics to achieve a definitive reading of her work.
