Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes: A Single Shared Mind

On the 25th February 1956 Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath met for the first time. The meeting signaled the start of a relationship which would be both romantic and volatile, inspiring creativity among the two writers but ending in terrible tragedy.

The occasion for the meeting was a literary party in Cambridge, held to celebrate the publication of the first issue of St. Botolph’s Review. (Source: New Historian, ‘Sylvia Plath Meets Ted Hughes’)
