    I 1953 vinder den 19-årige Esther Greenwood en måneds praktikophold i New York på et modemagasin. Som del af en gruppe talentfulde unge kvinder bliver hun indlogeret på hotel og inviteret ind i New Yorks fashionable verden med modeshows og fester. Esther vil gerne være digter og er en klartskuende og ret så nådesløs iagttager af det liv, der omgiver hende, men selv er hun mere og mere apatisk. Hjemkosten til Boston, hvor Esther bor med sin mor, bliver et chok. Hun får afslag på det skrivekursus, hun har ansøgt om, og sommeren ligger skræmmende tom foran hende. Efter et mislykket selvmordsforsøg bliver hun indlagt på psykiatrisk hospital. En glasklokke har sænket sig over hende. GLASKLOKKEN er nyoversat i af Mette Moestrup og Olga Ravn.

    The poems in Sylvia Plath's Ariel, including many of her best-known such as 'Lady Lazarus', 'Daddy', 'Edge' and 'Paralytic', were all written between the publication in 1960 of Plath's first book, The Colossus, and her death in 1963. 'If the poems are despairing, vengeful and destructive, they are at the same time tender, open to things, and also unusually clever, sardonic, hardminded . . . They are works of great artistic purity and, despite all the nihilism, great generosity . . . the book is a major literary event.' A. Alvarez in the ObserverThis beautifully designed edition forms part of a series with five other cherished poets, including Wendy Cope, Don Paterson, Philip Larkin, Simon Armitage and Alice Oswald.

    I lay there alone in bed, feeling the black shadow creeping up the underside of the world like a flood tide. Nothing held, nothing was left. The silver airplanes and the silver capes all dissolved and vanished, wiped away like the crude drawings of a child in coloured chalk from the colossal blackboard of the dark.The writings in this collection outline Plath's early preoccupation with issues of mental illness, creativity and femininity, all of which would become recurrent themes in her later work. They offer special insight into her development as a writer, and arguably paved the way for her only full-length piece of prose writing, the loosely veiled fictional autobiography, The Bell Jar.This second edition contains the thirteen stories included in the first edition together with five pieces of her journalism, as well as a few fragments from her journal; and a further nine stories selected from the Indiana archive.

    Originally published in 1960, The Colossus was the only volume of Sylvia Plath's poetry published before her death in 1963. Showing a scholarly dedication to the craft, the poems in this collection are brimming with originality and the startling imagery that would later confirm her status as one of the most important poets of the twentieth century. 'On every page, a poet is serving notice that she has earned her credentials and knows her trade.' Seamus Heaney 'She steers clear of feminine charm, deliciousness, gentility, supersensitivity and the act of being a poetess. She simply writes good poetry. And she does so with a seriousness that demands only that she be judged equally seriously . . . There is an admirable no-nonsense air about this; the language is bare but vivid and precise, with a concentration that implies a good deal of disturbance with proportionately little fuss.' A. Alvarez in the Observer

    1960 ist ein Jahr des Aufbruchs, Sylvia Plath zieht nach England und ihr einzig zu Lebzeiten veröffentlichter Gedichtband erscheint: Der Koloss . Kurz vor ihrem Tod, 1963, folgt ihr einziger Roman: Die Glasglocke . In den drei Jahren dazwischen schreibt Plath unerschöpflich und wird zweimal Mutter. »Es ist, als ob mein Herz ein Gesicht aufsetzte und in die Welt hinausginge.« Größte Verletzlichkeit prägt die Gedichte dieser Zeit gleichsam zuckersüßer Tage, »einzuwecken wie Obst«. Zwischen Leben schenken und Todesnähe entfaltet sich eine ergreifende, einmalige Kraft. Zum 90. Geburtstag versammelt Das Herz steht nicht still Sylvia Plaths monumentales lyrisches Spätwerk erstmals auf Deutsch. In der brillanten Übersetzung von Judith Zander wird erfahrbar, wie die Ikone feministischen Schreibens ihr Werk zur Vollendung brachte.
