A short article by English Department staff member Rudolph Glitz has recently been published in The Explicator and is now freely available via Open Access. It proposes a new reading of Sylvia Plath's most famous and controversial poem "Daddy" (1963), one that prioritises the speaker's marital break-up over her father complex.

If you're not familiar with the poem, you might want to listen to the author's own profoundly moving reading of it on YouTube:
