    Default My mistake, sorry.

    I enjoy reading poetry and I enjoyed reading Sylvia Plath's poems until I mistakenly discovered she murdered her own children.

    I made a very bad mistake and I am sorry.

    Now I wonder if even one poem is worth the life of a child.

    What do you think?
    I don't think she murdered her own children: I think she killed herself.

    Assia, Ted Hughes's wife after Plath killed herself, killed herself the same way and killed her child along with herself.

    Yes, you are right. She killed herself but didn't murder her children. I made a very bad mistake. Sorry.

    umm.. Freida is still alive, perhaps you should inform her of her death?

    nicholas killed himself last year... it was his decision, not his mother's...

    meaning, read the poems if you like... just not those of Andrea Yates

    "In the early morning of February 11, 1963, however, Plath set some bread and milk in the children's room then cracked their window and sealed their door off with tape. She went downstairs and, after sealing herself in the kitchen, knelt in front of the open oven and turned the gas on. Her body was discovered that morning by a nurse scheduled to visit and the construction worker who helped the nurse get into the house."

    It could have been anymore. Probably his children.

    Victor, WHY?

    God knows. I have just been banned for the first time from a thread, then I go and make a terrible mistake. I don't seem to know what is going on.

    I check myself internally and I seem to be OK. I check externally and things seem to be the same.

    But I seem to be going barking mad.

    Perhaps I should be just tied up in the backyard for a while until I calm down.
