(p.1) Introduction
Sylvia Plath's Fiction

Luke Ferretter

Edinburgh University Press

The introduction gives a chronological survey of Plath's fiction, published and unpublished. It divides her short stories into the following chronological groups – 1: Juvenilia (1946–50). 2: College Stories to 1953 (1950–53). 3: College Stories (1954–55). 4: Cambridge Stories (1956–57) 5: Boston and Yaddo (1958–59). 6: British Women's Stories (1960–62). The composition and publication details of each story are established here, often for the first time, as well as some of the major plot details. Next, the introduction provides a similar account of all three novels on which Plath worked: Falcon Yard, based on her Cambridge experience; The Bell Jar; and the novel she left unfinished at her death, Double Exposure.
