Angleški bralno-debatni krožek: Birthday Letters – Cvetka Sokolov

The collection of intimate poems Birthday Letters by Ted Hughes was published ten months before his death in 1998. The poems are addressed to his wife, Sylvia Plath, who died by suicide in 1963, and were written over a period of more than twenty-five years. They “reveal the heart of a poet some had judged heartless, and bring to life the spirit of a great love that had existed between two great artists” (Erica Wagner). The novel Your Story, My Story by Connie Palmen, discussed in the book club in October 2022, is based primarily on the eighty-eight poems in Birthday Letters.

 

Angleški bralno-debatni krožek: Pisma za rojstni dan – Cvetka Sokolov 

Zbirka intimnih pesmi Teda Hughesa Pisma za rojstni dan je izšla deset mescev pred njegovo smrtjo leta 1998. Pesnik v njej naslavlja svojo ženo, Sylvio Plath, ki je leta 1963 naredila samomor. Oseminosemdeset pesmi je nastajalo več kot petindvajset let. “Razkrivajo srce pesnika, ki so ga mnogi obtoževali brezsrčnosti in oživljajo resnično naravo velike ljubezni med velikima umetnikoma” (Erica Wagner). Roman Ti si rekel Connie Palmen, o katerem smo se pogovarjali na oktobrskem srečanju angleškega bralnega krožka, temelji predvsem na pesmih iz zbirke Pisma za rojstni dan.
