Sylvia Plath (/plæθ/; October 27, 1932 – February 11, 1963) was an American poet, novelist, and short-story writer. She is credited with advancing the genre of confessional poetry and is best known for two of her published collections, The Colossus and Other Poems (1960) and Ariel (1965), as well as The Bell Jar, a semi-autobiographical novel published shortly before her death by suicide in 1963.

The Collected Poems were published in 1981, and Plath was awarded a Pulitzer Prize in Poetry in 1982 posthumously.

Secreast's scholarship on Sylvia Plath appears in the journal Studies in the Novel, and my writing on Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring can be read in Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and Environment.
