Sylvia Plath

Poor Sylvia. All that talent, especially when she was miserable. The cold mother. The dead father. The over- achieving. The shock treatments. The cheating husband. So much to work with. Until she stuck her head in the oven. Though I sometimes think that modern doctors hand out anti-depressants like movie theater candy, I do think modern pharmacology could of really helped a girl like Sylvia.
