Sylvia Plath

Sylvia Plath was an American poet and novelist who married Ted Hughes. She committed suicide in London in 1963 aged just 30, and was buried in in a small cemetery adjacent to the churchyard at Heptonstall, West Yorkshire (where Ted Hughes' parents lived and which had served as the inspiration for her poem "November Graveyard").

One of her poems shares its title with the eponymous novel "Wuthering Heights" by Emily Bronte, and was no doubt inspired by her time spent in the Bronte Country area.

Besides her poetry Sylvia Plath was also famous for her novel "The Bell Jar", which was published (initially under the pseudonym "Victoria Lucas") only a month before her suicide in 1963.
