London Lit Festival 13: Sylvia Plath's Ariel

Sylvia Plath died 50 years ago leaving a black binder of poems that was to become her final, posthumous collection, Ariel.

Now 40 leading female poets and performers read one poem each from the restored edition of the final unedited manuscript. Casting is subject to availability but includes Maureen Beattie, Emily Berry, Samantha Bond, Kirsty Bushell, Anna Chancellor, Gillian Clarke, Julia Copus, Claire-Louise Cordwell, Imtiaz Dharker, Amanda Drew, Noma Dumezweni, Ruth Fainlight, Kate Fahy, Deborah Findlay, Victoria Hamilton, Anastasia Hille, Joan Iyiola, Phyllis Logan, Amy McAllister, Lizzy McInnerny, Tracy-Ann Oberman, Siobhan Redmond, Jo Shapcott, Jean Sprackland, Gerda Stevenson, Juliet Stevenson and Harriet Walter.

'In these poems... Sylvia Plath becomes herself, becomes something imaginary, newly, wildly and subtly created.' (Robert Lowell)
