I WISH I HAD A SYLVIA PLATH

Dear Santa,

If you could arrange for these super-rare uncollected first editions by Sylvia Plath, currently going on eBay for $5 each, to be delivered into my care promptly for December 25th I'll be sure to leave you out a HUGE tankard of whiskey and a Ginsters pie...


The two uncollected poems are "Dialogue between Ghost & Priest" (1956) and "Child's Park Stones" (1958).


The two poems are "Incommunicado" and "Firesong."

Million Dollar Month, written when Plath was a student at Smith College. A hard to find gem.

I'm giddy...

My plan would be to POSSIBLY recover these in some vintage fabric since they are so drab and boring looking. But I don't know if I could do that to Plath first editions...

SERIOUSLY, someone buy me em? I still don't have an eBay account :(





PS watch this looking out at the snow. Perfection.

AND ALSO anyone know where I can get the Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath NEW? Amazon only have used ones, and, like, I don't really like that.
