Sylvia Plath reads 'Daddy'

Yesterday's Observer Review had a feature on 'The 50 Greatest Arts Videos on YouTube', including literature clips - Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs, Zora Neale Hurston, Vladimir Nabokov, and, below, Sylvia Plath reading 'Daddy', on which Ajesh Patalay comments : "what a rendition. Plath's mesmerising voice - refined, meticulous, scathing - gets stuck into 'Daddy' with considerable bite".

In the same edition of the newspaper, there is an interview with Judy Carver, William Golding's daughter, on Lord of the Flies and its stage version.
