Bad sound recording
Up front, I will admit, I was expecting more straight poetry reading than commentary. However, this audible offering is mostly a lecture on the lives, learning, deaths, influences, and poetry analysis of Sexton and Plath. There was very little actual poetry.
However, my biggest complaint was with the audio quality. This sounds like an old and porrly done casset tape recording of a lecture a student took while in class, or a terrible phone connection on some radio show. In addition, the lectuer speaks very fast, stumbles of her words, sometimes says the wrong word and has to repeat. She also repeats statements and ideas and analysis more than once, which I find irritating.
Overall, not a good offering. If there is a sample available, I suggest listening to it before purchase.

Wonderful class taught by the best
This recording shares background information that assists in undetstanding these two marve!ous poets. I also come away with a strengthened approach to reading poetry.
