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’)

I grew up in the Bronx until I was about ten, and then we moved to New Jersey. I grew up in a very multicultural family. My mother is Afro-Cuban and Jamaican, and my father is Greek and Jewish. I felt the influences from all the different cultures — the stories, the ideas. And my parents are both communists and activists, so they’ve always been all about equality and doing something important with your life. I always wanted to do something big, I just didn’t know how I would go about changing the world.
