Two on Anne Sexton

During her life, Anne Sexton became well-known for her poetry, which was written in what may have called the "confessional" style. Her contemporaries included poet Robert Lowell, and before she took her own life in 1974 she managed to compose hundreds of exemplary poems. This first site about her life and times from the Poetry Foundation contains poems such as "All My Pretty Ones", "Crossing the Atlantic", and numerous others. Visitors to the site can also read an extended biographical essay about her life, check out a bibliography of related works, and also check out some suggestions for future reading. The second link is provided by the Modern American Poetry website and here visitors can read an essay about Sexton's career by Diana Hume George and also read a few critical interpretations on her work.
