Sylvia Plath - poetry


New Member
I wondered if all of SP´s early poems (composed before 1956), 50 of which are included in the Collected Poems, have ever been published as a book. Can anyone help?
Bad news to me. Maybe it is a copyright issue which prevents a publication. It is a pity nevertheless. Mad Girl´s Love Song is such an excellent poem one has to wonder why it was not included in the selection.
The failure to include "Mad Girl's Love Song" in the Collected Poems, even in its "definitive" list of juvenilia, since the poem had already been published and was known to her biographers as one of her favorites, is one indication that the book is unreliable. There is no one-stop shopping for the poetry of Sylvia Plath.
