Sylvia Plath Map of Northampton
When I began studying Sylvia Plath's manuscripts and personal library over a decade ago in the Mortimer Rare Book Room at Smith College, I led tours for visiting scholars of the Plath sites. When I was back in the library last summer, some scholars arrived and I began to make a Sylvia Plath Map of Northampton using Google Maps so that visitors could access it on their phones. The map includes captions and images. I will be adding to the map and also hope to indicate the places Plath lived and visited throughout the United States, England, and Europe. Peter Steinberg has located many of these places on his website and blog and many scholars have tracked down others, particularly in the journal Plath Profiles.
