The Colossus Reviews


"[Her poems] have that exquisite, heart-breaking quality about them that hasmade Sylvia Plath our acknowledged Queen of Sorrows, the spokeswoman for our mostprivate, most helpless nightmares. . . . Her poetry is as deathly as it is impeccable; it enchants us almost as powerfully as it must have enchanted her." --Joyce Carol Oates, The New York Times "Sylvia Plath's eye is sharp . . . and her wits responsive to what she sees." --Richard Howard, Poetry ..."The Colossus, which appeared earlier in England to unusual acclaim [was] her first volume to be published in America. Certainly the praise bestowed on her by British critics is warranted; Sylvia Plath is indeed a rare talent and a consummate craftsman...her powerful poems crackle and smolder with energy."--Guy Owen, Books Abroad "She steers clear of feminine charm, deliciousness, gentility, supersensitivity and the act of being a poet. She simply writes good poetry."--Al Alvarez, London Observer "From the Trade Paperback edition.
