Sylvia Plath: Poems

Portrayals in media

Gwyneth Paltrow portrayed Plath in the biopic Sylvia (2003). Frieda Hughes, now a poet and painter, who was two years old when her mother died, was angered by the making of entertainment featuring her parents' lives. She accused the "peanut crunching" public of wanting to be titillated by the family's tragedies.[76]

Plath's voice is heard in the BBC documentary about her life.[77]
