Both Plath and Hughes are recognised as leading poets in their own right. As a couple, however, the chemistry between them produced a unique body of work which offers insights into the fraught, emotional struggle which defined their relationship, one which culminated in the tragic suicide of Plath. Looking closely at the work of both poets and unravelling the biographical context which inspired the verse, we will develop an understanding of the complex relationship between love, life and art.
