Rate this:
Sylvia Plath's breathtaking modern verse, radically feminine perspective and anatomization of her depression and journey to suicide brought a whole new readership to poetry. 'Hardcastle Crags' and 'The Great Carbuncle,' set on the moor above Heptonstall, the Yorkshire town where she is now buried, are representative of work addressing an adopted landscape when she was newly married to Ted Hughes. The film explores Plath's visits to Hughes's family and events that engendered this bleak take on her relationship. It also uses Plath to springboard across the valley to the real and fictional 'Wuthering Heights' and into Emily Bronte's verse on the same landscape.
