Condition: See description

New York: Harper ‘s Magazine Press, 1973. First Edition. 8vo, quarter brown cloth over boards in dust jacket. 85. A fine copy in slightly edge worn dust jacket. “‘A Closer Look at Ariel’ tells us much about Sylvia Plath that we would otherwise never know and that other sources only imply. For its intelligence, narrative pace and clear-eyed sympathy this memoir would be worth reading, even if it were about some anonymous college girl of the fifties rather than the best informed account we could have of crucial events in the life and art of this important poet.”-Publisher
