Letters Home: Ohioans and Their Wartime Correspondence
This correspondence gives some insight into the complex life of this talented young writer, who died by her own hand at the tender age of 30 years. Tight copy, in very good condition for year. He stalked in the door yesterday with a packet of little pink shrimp and four fresh trout. I made a nectar of Shrimp Newburg with essence of butter, cream, sherry and cheese; had it on rice with the trout. It took us three hours to peel all the little tiny shrimp, and Ted just lay groaning by the hearth after the meal with utter delight, like a huge Goliath.
He tells me fairy stories, and stories of kings and green knights, and has made up a marvelous fable of his own about a little wizard named Snatchcraftington, who looks like a stalk of rhubarb. He tells me dramas, marvelous colored dreams, about certain red foxes. The reason why you must be at ease and not worry about my proud growing this time is because I have learned to make a life growing through toleration of conflict, sorrow, and hurt.
I fear none of these things and turn myself to whatever trial with an utter faith that life is good and a song of joy on my lips.
Letters Home by Plath, Sylvia
I feel like Job and will rejoice in the deadly blasts of whatever comes. I love others, the girls in the house, the boys on the newspaper, and I am flocked about by people who bask in my sun. I give and give; my whole life will be a saying of poems and a loving of people and giving of my best fiber to them. This faith comes from the earth and sun; it is pagan in a way; it comes from the heart of man after the fall. I know that within a year I shall publish a book of 33 poems which will hit the critics violently in some way or another. My voice is taking shape, coming strong. Ted says he never read poems by a woman like mine; they are strong and full and rich — not quailing and whining like Teasdale or simple lyrics like Millay; they are working, sweating, heaving poems born out of the way words should be said.
source link Oh, mother, rejoice with me and fear not. I love you, and Warren, and my dear suffering grammy and dear loving grampy with all my heart and shall spend my life making you strong and proud of me!
You are so right about all of this! And the SP letter that you feature illustrates the point perfectly.
No healthy person would want to be on the receiving end of all that, yet Aurelia by publishing these letters seems to have found it perfectly okay. Desirable, even. Your comment about her not being intelligent enough psychologically is spot-on.
