Crossing the Water

by Plath, Sylvia

"A representative selection of verse by the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer who left in the wake of her personal tragedy a legacy of poems that combine terrifying intensity and dazzling artistry. With their brutally frank self-exposure and emotional immediacy, Plath's poems... have had an enduring influence on contemporary poetry."
