The intent of the following thesis is to establish an approach to the body of Sylvia Plath's poetry, to provide some insight into an artistic career which lasted less than ten years. [...] The approach I establish, then, takes the poems in their chronological order. I have attempted an understanding of her mautre work, thus, on its own terms, terms Plath herself established, subsequently broke from and re-styled, so that I might dispel the stultifying effect her suicide has had on our critical interpretation.
