Good day everyone. We hope this Sunday is treating you well. For this weeks poem, we have decided to go with some Anne Sexton, who along with Sylvia Plath, Anais Nin and Maya Angelou, we feel is one of the finest female poets of the 1900s. In this, the reading of her seminal, accomplished piece “All My Pretty Ones”, Sexton muses on her Father, personal family history, and the pain of loss and acceptance.
This poem really is Sexton at her best, her most introspective and darkest, and hearing the poem in her own voice lends a whole new level of meaning to this, arguably one of the finest poems of the middle of the 20th Century.
If you’ve not paid much attention to Sexton’s work before, then we’d like you to take this opportunity to take some time out of your day (it’s Sunday – what do you have to do? 😉 ) and discover her works for yourself.
