Plath’s Daughter Pleads: Let Her Rest in Peace

An Anonymous Patron writes “Sylvia Plath’s daughter hopes people will lose interest in analyzing her mother’s life and denigrating her father.

Ms. Hughes is also unhappy with how Hollywood has portrayed her mother, according to Yahoo News :

Hughes refuses to see the biopic “Sylvia” in which Gwyneth Paltrow played her mother. And her disdain for the film was rammed home in her own caustic poem “My Mother” in which she wrote:

“The peanut eaters, entertained at my mother’s death,

Will go home, each carrying their memory of her.

Lifeless — a souvenir. Maybe they’ll buy the video.”
