The aim of this blog is to serve as a meeting point to those who study or have studied English philology and, more broadly, to all those who love literature and language.

Last Sunday I heard about "Last Letter" for the first time. Browsing through the Internet for a while, I realise that the discovery of this unpublished poem by Ted Hughes has been a media event in the literary circles of the English speaking world, especially in the UK. The dramatic relationship of Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath together with the charm of their two somehow dark and powerful personalities, some aspects of their lives and the quality of their works have the power to make a poem worth reading by many people who otherwise are not too fond of poetry.
