Description - Other "Ariel" by Lynda K. Bundtzen

She pays particular attention to a sequence of five poems about beekeeping which Plath originally intended as the book's conclusion and shows these poems to be simultaneously veiling and revealing the future that Plath both longed for and dreaded in a new life apart from Hughes. In a concluding chapter, Bundtzen demonstrates they ways in which Hughes's last collection of poetry, "Birthday Letters", extends the dialogue Plath initiated with him in her manuscripts for the "Ariel" poems. Bundtzen interprets Hughes's self-depiction as a grieving Orpheus who repeatedly looks back to address Plath both as the fading shadow of Eurydice and as a fellow poet of mourning.
