Passwords: Sina Queyras on Sylvia Plath

Despite the brevity of her life, Sylvia Plath forever changed the world of American letters, both as poet and as cultural icon. Lambda Literary Award winner Sina Queyras guides audiences in a fresh look at one of poetry’s most influential figures. Queyras is the author of several poetry collections, including Lemon Hound, MxT and, most recently, My Ariel.
