Sylvia Plath (27 October 1932–11 February 1963) was an American poet and novelist who's probably most famous for committing suicide at the age of thirty. Although not the first, she helped popularise a then-new genre of poetry—[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confessional_poetry confessional poetry]]—that emphasises revealing intimate details about the poet's life, often with brutal honesty. Plath is still incredibly popular today, despite her short life and limited bibliography, precisely ''because'' of her honesty, coupled with her imagery and diction.

* CreatorBreakdown: The poems written in the weeks before her suicide get darker and darker, until you get to [[http://www.sylviaplathforum.com/edge.html Edge]], which is a creepy poem about a statue of a woman, and the last poem she ever wrote.
* DeadArtistsAreBetter: As soon as she died, the accolades and awards started pouring in.
* ExecutiveMeddling:
** Ted Hughes rearranged the order of the poems for her last book, ''{{Ariel}}'', and even added some poems that Plath hadn't intended to go in the book.
** According to a letter she wrote to her brother, Sylvia Plath never intended for a US publication of ''The Bell Jar''.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Her death at thirty prevented any poetry she might have yet created from coming into existence. She also had a second novel in mind that would present the world through the eyes of health as opposed to the eyes of the depressed and suicidal Esther.
