The authors discuss Sylvia Plath archival discoveries in unique ways, unearthing previously unknown materials and bringing new context to well-known worksNew essays on the sociological notion of ‘haunting’ in the archiveInnovative approaches to distance/international collaboration in archival scholarshipIntroduces new ways of understanding Sylvia PlathPlath’s The Bell Jar is to be released in 2018 as a major film starring Dakota Fanning and directed by Kirsten Dunst These Ghostly Archives: The Unearthing of Sylvia Plath offers a ground-breaking look at Plath studies. Focusing on previously unpublished material found in archives from around the world, These Ghostly Archives aims to reconstruct the ghostly figure of Plath within our culture via unseen letters, manuscripts, photographs, places and poems. This book approaches archival studies exploring both the practical and experiential work carried out in the archive, highlighting the ‘detective’-type work that it involves and the traces left behind from history. However, for the first time, this work also combines the sociological notion of ‘haunting’ - that is, the archive as a location where researchers haunt the research subject and in turn are haunted by the traces left behind. Never is material culture more powerful than when associated with the dead; never is the archive ghostlier when haunted by the absent presence of Plath. This book showcases the necessity to leave no archival box or folder left unopened, and how the researcher and the archive can change even though its documents might stay the same.

A vividly rendered and empathetic exploration of how two of the greatest poets of the 20th century—Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton—became bitter rivals and, eventually, friends. Introduced at a workshop in Boston University led by the acclaimed and famous poet Robert Lowell, Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton formed a friendship that would soon evolve into a fierce rivalry, colored by jealousy and respect in equal terms. In the years that followed, these two women would not only become iconic figures in literature, but also lead curiously parallel lives haunted by mental illness, suicide attempts, self-doubt, and difficult personal relationships. With weekly martini meetings at the Ritz to discuss everything from sex to suicide, theirs was a relationship as complex and subversive as their poetry. Based on in-depth research and unprecedented archival access, Three-Martini Afternoons at the Ritz is a remarkable and unforgettable look at two legendary poets and how their work has turned them into lasting and beloved cultural figures.

Explores critical and creative responses to the contemporary poetry archiveProvides an innovative new dialogue between critics and creative writers on the value and practice of the literary archiveExpandes the scope for understanding perspectives on, and the opposition between, creative and critical relations to archival materialsOpens up a new cross-disciplinary agenda for thinking the archive as both a source for scholarship and a source of inspiration for creative practiceThese 13 newly commissioned chapters examine the impact of archival poetry collections on both literary scholarship and poetic practice. They examine what we can learn from the drafts, notebooks and personal libraries left behind by poets and look at the ways in which the growth of poetry archives has changed the way poets think about their work. The contributing poets and scholars - including Susan Howe, Sean O'Brien and George Szirtes - present an in-depth account of the significance of poetry archives for contemporary literature. The collection provides a new cross-disciplinary agenda for thinking about the archive as both a source for scholarship and inspiration for creative practice.

Instead of smoothing over contemporary art's violent and iconoclastic dimensions, instead of sanitizing and making complex artworks docile in terms of archival possibilities, this book suggests we abandon our fantasy of mastery over representation and respond in kind to the archive-as-artwork, to "living" archives, and to reenactments of history with their seamless connections between fiction and non-fiction. Among the concepts examined are Vilém Flusser's techno-imagination, Lygia Clark's and Hélio Oiticica's participatory aesthetics, and Paulo Bruscky's and Eduardo Kac's literal performances of the archive. They contribute to the erosion of the archive's former boundaries, stability, function, and meaning. Writing alongside the artists as much as about them, Osthoff examines the archive mise-en-abyme, as it grows increasingly recombinant and generative. Simone Osthoff received her Ph.D. from the European Graduate School and is Associate Professor of Critical Studies in the School of Visual Arts at Pennsylvania State University. An art critic and historian of contemporary art, her numerous essays, focusing on media art practices and issues of historiography, have been published internationally and translated into over eight languages.

Collected over the course of two decades in the 1990s and 2000s, these true tales of 20 of America and Canada's most famous spooklights will inform and fascinate you. Spooklights, also known as ghost lights, will o' the wisps, or fairy lights, are anomalous lights of unknown origin that hover over the ground in natural areas such as forests, bogs, and mountains. They differ from other paranormal or supernatural phenomena in that their existence is undeniable; they can be filmed and photographed, and thousands of people have seen them. The lights are tied to specific geographic locations and can often be "called" by various means, often with the use of car headlights.In this volume of the True Ghost Stories Archive, the world's oldest ghost information website, the author has gathered firsthand accounts from her own archives and combined them with objectively researched history to give fresh insight into the legend and science surrounding these intriguing ghost lights. This book will take you on a journey from the mysterious Marfa Lights dancing in the desert of West Texas to the flickering Brown Mountain Lights of North Carolina to the numerous cases of ghostly, headless train conductors at old railroad sites across North America. Are the lights the wandering spirits of the dead, or are they something as prosaic as car headlights? That is for the reader to decide.Included in this volume are the following ghost lights: Anson Lights (Anson, Texas); Bingham's Light (Dillon, South Carolina); Bragg Road/Big Thicket/Saratoga Light (Bragg, Texas); Brown Mountain Lights (North Carolina); Chapel Hill Light (Chapel Hill, Tennessee); Codgell Spooklight (Codgell, Georgia); Cohoke Light (West Point, Virginia); Crossett Light (Crossett, Arkansas); Dover Lights (Dover, Arkansas); Gurdon Ghost Light (Gurdon, Arkansas); Hansell Road (Bucks County, Pennsylvania); Hornet/Joplin/Neosho Spooklight (Missouri/Oklahoma); Maco Light (Maco, North Carolina); Marfa Lights (Marfa, Texas); Oxford Light (Oxford Township, Ohio); Paulding Light (Watersmeet, Michigan); Rich Mountain Light (Mena, Arkansas); Scugog Island Light (Port Perry, Ontario); Senath Light (Hornersville, Missouri); St. Louis Ghost Train (St. Louise, Saskatchewan).
