Presented By: Amanda Golden

Sylvia Plath irrevocably altered the landscape of poetry in the mid 20th century. Few poets have rendered such syntactical realizations of language combined with stunning emotional intelligence onto the page. In this celebration and resurrection of Plath's indelible mark on the world of poetry, we'll get to hear from scholar Amanda Golden on the relevance of Plath's work now. Amanda Golden is Associate Professor of English at New York Institute of Technology. She is the author of "Annotating Modernism: Marginalia and Pedagogy from Virginia Woolf to the Confessional Poets" (Routledge, 2020) and will be discussing this text in recognition of the launch of the paperback edition. She is also editor of "This Business of Words: Reassessing Anne Sexton" (UPF, 2016), and is co-editing "The Bloomsbury Handbook to Sylvia Plath" (2022) with Anita Helle and Maeve O’Brien and "The Poems of Sylvia Plath" (Faber & Faber) with Karen V. Kukil. She has also published in "Modernism/modernity," "The Space Between: Literature and Culture, 1914-1945," and "Woolf Studies Annual."
