Sylvia Plath was an American poet whose poems collected in her book Ariel became increasingly popular during the 1960s. After her marriage broke apart, she wrote the poems she is now best-known for and made her own name. But struggling with her new life, being alone and exhausted, feeling she had failed as a perfect wife, mother and daughter, she finally lost her lifelong battle with depression and took her own life in 1963 at the age of thirty.
