The Sylvia Plath Bake-Off

Today is the anniversary of the death of American poet, Sylvia Plath.

On February 11, 1963, on a bitter, cold, dark London evening Plath put her two small children to bed, then she turned on the gas stove in her kitchen, lay down with her head in that oven and she died.

She was 30 years old. She was talented. She was celebrated.
She was heartsick. She was depressed. 

Celebrate Plath’s life and art today by baking something yummy.

Make cookies for someone you love. Bake lasagna for dinner.

Read a poem. Write a poem. 

Cherish your life.
