Bibliography of Works by Sylvia Plath


In Sylvia Plath's lifetime, she published only two books: The Colossus in 1960 and The Bell Jar, under the pseudonym Victoria Lucas, in 1963, both through Heinemann in London. Plath saw The Colossus published in America, too, though with a different table of contents (fewer poems), in 1962 through Knopf. To quote Ted Hughes, "the rest is posthumous."
