    1. I know others studies her at school but I never did. This made me realise how human we all are and how we each strive for perfection in our own way and how we are failed by those we trust. The pressures of being a woman an in mans world are no less today then they were in the 50's and 60's but as Slyvia realised it is our own perception of these restriction that keep them real, we can decide to break the bonds if we wish, but as women we ned to be united to do this.

    2. I picked these up on a whim they sort of called out to me on the shelf. Listening to Sylvia read her own work was purely haunting. Sent shivers down my spine and brought tears to my eyes. I have always felt an odd connection to Sylvia reading along as she spoke sort of felt at home, even if a bit mystic.

    3. I absolutely love this recording. I owned the cassette at one point. Poetry is meant to be read and it's in her voice! It doesn't get better. Truly a treasure.
