Sylvia Plath, Aurelia Plath [Frieda Hughes]
Rare copy. Very emotional.
Publisher: New York Harper and Row 1975
pp. 438 Olwyn Hughes' bound galley proof of the first publication of her sister in law Sylvia Plath's letters, annotated by Sylvia Plath's daughter, Frieda Hughes. In addition to Frieda Hughes' annotations this early version of the galley proof contains at least three preliminary drafts of Aurelia's editorial commentary to be subsequently removed or published in revised form as the two sides of Plath's family battled it out over her posthumous reputation. Tall octavo galley proof format, bound in soiled green wrappers, IN GOOD CONDITION, PROTECTED WITH PLASTIC, this text reproduces numerous earlier handwritten corrections probably made by the book's editor at Harper and Row. The three most significant passages to be published here which were revisedor disappeared from later issues of the proofs and in due course from the printed text are contained in Aurelia Plath's acknowledgments regarding Ted and Olwyn Hughes which passage was entirely rewritten to remove Olwyn's name; at page 426 where Aurelia Plath discusses in her commentary her daughter's hurtful use for her novel The Bell Jar of the 'pseudonym Victoria Lucas. Those who had sacrificed for her, served and loved her were to be hurt and would consider themselves betrayed' (later excised) and at p. 407: Ted Hughes says that he borrowed money from his family when he left and between September and early February gave her over £900' - also excised from later issue proofs and the printed text. Olwyn Hughes does not appear to have annotated the proof although Plath's bibliographer Stephen Tabor discusses at some length Olwywn and Ted Hughes' intimate involvement in the publication of this work.
