Plath, Sylvia
The Colossus and Other Poems.
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1962. First American edition of Plath's first collection of poetry, the only volume published during her lifetime. Octavo, original cloth. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of shelfwear. Typography, binding, and jacket design by Vincent Torre. Name to the front free endpaper. An exceptional example. Born in Boston in 1932, American poet Sylvia Plath's writing first attracted notice when she was still a student at Smith College and won the Mademoiselle College Fiction Contest. After attending Cambridge University on a Fulbright grant, she taught at Smith and won a number of prizes for her poetry as well as a Eugene F. Saxton fellowship to complete her first novel, The Bell Jar, which was published shortly before her death in 1963. Plath's first volume of poetry and the only collection published during her lifetime, The Colossus and Other Stories, contains many of Plath's most highly regarded confessional poems, including "The Manor Garden", "A Winter Ship", "Moonrise", "The Hermit at Outermost House", and "The Beekeeper's Daughter".
