Sylvia Plath foi uma poetisa, romancista e contista norte-americana.

Reconhecida principalmente por sua obra poética, Sylvia Plath escreveu também um romance semi-autobiográfico, "A Redoma de Vidro" , sob o pseudônimo Victoria Lucas, com detalhamentos do histórico de sua luta contra a depressão. Assim como Anne Sexton, Sylvia Plath é creditada por dar continuidade ao gênero de poesia confessional, iniciado por Robert Lowell e W.D. Snodgrass .


„Você nunca se decepciona quando não espera nada de alguém.“ The Bell Jar

„Ninguém no caminho, e nada, nada a não ser amoras“

„Respirei fundo e escutei o velho e orgulhoso som do meu coração. Eu sou, eu sou, eu sou.“

„Talvez quando nos encontramos querendo tudo, é porque estamos perigosamente perto de não querer nada.“

„I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in my life. And I am horribly limited.“ The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath


„If you expect nothing from somebody you are never disappointed.“ The Bell Jar

„And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.“ The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

„Kiss me, and you will see how important I am.“ The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath


„I saw my life branching out before me like the green fig tree in the story. From the tip of every branch, like a fat purple fig, a wonderful future beckoned and winked. One fig was a husband and a happy home and children, and another fig was a famous poet and another fig was a brilliant professor, and another fig was Ee Gee, the amazing editor, and another fig was Europe and Africa and South America, and another fig was Constantin and Socrates and Attila and a pack of other lovers with queer names and offbeat professions, and another fig was an Olympic lady crew champion, and beyond and above these figs were many more figs I couldn't quite make out. I saw myself sitting in the crotch of this fig tree, starving to death, just because I couldn't make up my mind which of the figs I would choose. I wanted each and every one of them, but choosing one meant losing all the rest, and, as I sat there, unable to decide, the figs began to wrinkle and go black, and, one by one, they plopped to the ground at my feet.“ The Bell Jar

„I have the choice of being constantly active and happy or introspectively passive and sad. Or I can go mad by ricocheting in between.“ The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

„Perhaps when we find ourselves wanting everything, it is because we are dangerously close to wanting nothing.“

„The silence depressed me. It wasn't the silence of silence. It was my own silence.“ The Bell Jar
