Eye Rhymes: Sylvia Plath's Art of the Visual, edited by Kathleen Connors. Oxford University Press, USA (October 26, 2007)

Francesca Martin reports in the Guardian: "In the book Eye Rhymes: Sylvia Plath's Art of the Visual, editor Kathleen Connors reveals illustrated childhood letters that Plath wrote when she was seven, which were found in the Plath family attic in 1996. There are also schoolbook sketches, portraits and a series of photographs and paintings from when Plath was an art student at Smith College, Massachusetts, including this self-portrait. The works were all completed by the time Plath was 20, at which point she decided to concentrate on her writing." Read more.
