An open letter to my father, who was brutally killed
I still remember the day you left us as if it were just yesterday. I will never forget the sound of Mama's wails and the tears that wouldn’t stop streaming down her face. Your sudden departure has left us with so many unanswered questions and a deep sense of loss that can never be filled.
After his wife of 50 years died, a man discovered a letter she had kept hidden the whole time
Tony Trapani was having a mundane day like any other day when he decided to clean his wife’s filing cabinet. She passed away recently, and Rapids knew he had to live alone from then. It was then he strongly wished for a child, something the couple tried throughout the 50 years of their marriage. Unfortunately, they couldn’t conceive, and his wife eventually died childless, leaving him all alone at 81, or at least that’s what he thought.

The best way to experience Plath's writing is to read her letters. Her poetry is like living in a beautiful world, but her letters are like experiencing her electrical insights. The sight of such a prolific poet in utter despair will make you sad, and you will wonder what you can do to save such a beautiful soul. This book will give you an entirely new reading experience. She addresses most of her letters to her mother, Aurelia, who is the editor. The most interesting part of the book for me is when she tells about her interviews with Marianne Moore, lecturing with W.H. Auden, and later, dining with T.S. Eliot and his wife. Her early letters show a glimpse into her life. When she meets Ted Hughes in these early letters, she reflects her love for life. The beauty of it all is her love for life. And yet, her tragic end is truly heartbreaking.
