Sylvia Plath appearances in popular culture

Sylvia Plath: poet, wife, daughter, mother, student, author.

For some reason it's mostly teenage girls who can appreciate her writing?  Maybe because of the fascination with her personal life, her tragic life, which detracts from the significance and worth of her work.  Maybe because of a silly idea that her work isn't relevant or meaningful to anybody else?

Any mention of her in the press is due to a family tragedy, more gossip, more secrets being turned into books.  So even if it is only teenage girls appreciating her work on screen - at least someone is - and hopefully one day that'll because they know nothing about her personal life and just adore her poetry.  It is, after all, the same respect we award most authors.
