Everyone will finally know the real Silvia Plath.
The diaries, which are being serialized in London\'s The Guardian newspaper this week, provide new details about Plath and her turbulent marriage to British poet Ted Hughes. Plath gassed herself in her kitchen at the age of 30 a few months after Hughes left her for another woman.
After Plath\'s death,Ted Hughes maintained control over her journals and permitted only a much-edited version to be published in 1982. The couple\'s children are now permitting publication of the complete diaries.
\'\'The Journals of Sylvia Plath,\'\' will be published on April 3. You can read about the at booksunlimited.co.uk
