Joyelle McSweeney on the "necropastoral" of Sylvia Plath

Today on Montevidayo.


"I’ve started reading through Ariel again, and it’s striking to me the degree to which this text works as necropastoral. The imagery of Ariel continually construes a kind of abeyance, a sojourn or removal to a blank world continually pierced by images of the would-be natural which reveal themselves as artifice and convey Art and Death to the Artist, whose vulnerability to Art’s impulses is pre-registered by her illness, her body as wound."
