Luke Ferretter: On "Plath's Writing on the Verso"

Plath typed both ‘Tomorrow Begins Today’ and ‘Home Is Where the Heart Is’, the other story she wrote in January 1955 for the Christophers, and which also features a strong heroine who teaches herself a lesson in moral value, on the verso of drafts of her poem ‘Bluebeard’. The poem and the stories on either side of the pages symbolise the difference between the ways in which Plath wrote about gender relationships in poetry and in fiction at the time.
