Maggie Nelson Essay on Anne Sexton

Maggie Nelson wrote her undergraduate thesis on poets Anne Sexton and Sylvia Plath. Here are an interesting trio of essays on Anne Sexton, including one by Maggie Nelson: “A Note on Anne Sexton and Her Critical Legacy.” In it Nelson quotes Wittgenstein and comments on the idea that critical interpretation influences how we experience texts. These essays are from Crossroads, in response to the Poetry Society of America’s tribute to Anne Sexton in New York City, in May 2001.
