'I always expect lips to curl whenever I dare to mention that my favourite poet is Sylvia Plath.'

Helen Kitson:
It's pointless to try to mould Plath into a feminist. On the "subject" of women she was often loaded with spite and mockery ("Face Lift", "Eavesdropper"). But, for me, what she did was to give me the courage to be a feminist and still be vindictive, jealous…I don't believe that even a committed feminist has to love the concept of "wimmin" and womanhood wholesale. Or rather, I can be a feminist, in broad terms, but still dislike individual women. We’re not all of a piece, after all. We can even hate our mothers; even as we love them.

My lips won't curl. I am something of a devotee of Plath, though not for your reason perhaps. For me, her feminism is a side issue. It's the poetry that counts.

my lip doesn't curl either. I think there is so much myth placed upon plath, which distorts her more interesting humanity.
