    I looked up this poem because of a reference to it in the book, The Fading Smile: Poets in Boston, from Robert Frost to Robert Lowell to Sylvia Plath,1955 - 1960, by Peter Davison. Poet Philip Booth on p.124 said 'I still think that 'Stepping Backward' is one of the most remarkable love poems ever to be written by a young poet, when she was nineteen, or something.' I find that this poem is well worth looking up. (Report) Reply
