Poetic Voices

One thing I miss about living in England is the news!  I always felt the news there was more diverse and insightful.  You got more of a taste for the arts and sciences, which is what I’m drawn to most.  Although, it might have just been the case that I actually had the time to read the news more when I lived there than I do now.  Nonetheless, a lovely British friend of mine sent me the link yesterday to this great news article.  For those who do not know me, Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes are two of my favorite poets.  Both had very successful careers and produced some amazing works in their lifetime.

Married at one time, (which eventually came to a tragic end) the two poets together and separately had a huge impact on the literary world.  Not just because of their writing, but because of their well publicized fiery relationship.  What is so unique then about this article is that it has both of their voices on tape, speaking about how they met among other things.  I have recordings of both poets reading their works and they each have such unique voices that their sound alone draws you in. 

I essentially wanted to share this with you because these two poetic voices remain very close to my heart and my inspiration in writing poetry.  Because of this, I thought you might be interested in hearing them tell their story in their own words.
