Sylvia Plath on needing other people (aside from Ted Hughes) to read her work:

I need an outsider: feel like a recluse who comes out into the world with a life-saving gospel to find everybody has learned a new language in the meantime and can’t understand a word he’s saying.

I know exactly what she means.

    I don’t know how I’ve managed to never read any Plath. I’ve read ABOUT her tons. Just not her own words. That is sad.
