Kenyon is wonderful. Plath is a great pick. Thanks Suzanne.

It was tough to pick just one, but fun to cruise all the bookshelves. :-)

Ditto on Plath's third collection. What a shame that she didn't live to write more. A true loss to literature.

A great list! And thank you for bringing me back to my blog after an absence.
