I deeply feel her love and insanity from this love. Love does make people do crazy things

Wonderful expression,from Plath,I heard about her from friends.. I like the verse, I fancied you return the way you said,but I grow old forgotten your name.(I think I made you up inside my head.)

Today I finished reading the Bell Jar as an assignment for my feminist literature course, and I decided to look this poem up, remembering that it has always been one of my favorites. After reading it nearly ten times in the last hour, I love it more than I did even when it was something fresh and new to me. I value and admire this one work of Sylvia's more than I value any other poet's work, more than my own, more than anyone else's collectively. She was a wonderful, brilliant, talented woman.

Like Casey, I've just started exploring Sylvia's poetry, and I have to agree; it's amazing. This and Metaphors are probably my favourite poems of hers that I've read so far. I love this because it really speaks to me, and it's just such a wonderful piece of writing.
