PLATH, Sylvia. Winter Trees. London: Faber and Faber, 1971.

8vo., original blue cloth with lettering in silver to spine; original unclipped blue dust wrapper; pp. 55; ever-so-slight rubbing to the edges of the boards, but for all intents and purposes an otherwise fine copy.
First edition.
A posthumous collection of poems written in the last nine months Plath's life and published by her husband, Ted Hughes. Together, the poems form part of the group from which the Ariel poems were chosen. The title poem represents a fight between darkness and light, while Child concerns the birth of Plath’s second child, Nicholas, written just two weeks before she died. Her radio play Three Women, also included here, was written slightly earlier, in the transitional peiod between The Colossus and Ariel.
