The recording includes readings from The Beehive, Stings, Fever 103, New Statue, Cut, Contusion, Daddy,Death & Co., Angelfire, The Colossus, The Applicant, A Fatherless Son, Lesbos, and excerpts from The Bell Jar. The recording is described by Charles Ruas as a program “primarily devoted towards the dark and feminist undertones in Plath’s work. This implication was magnified by the female actresses that participated in the reading of her works.
