— Appears in: Antipodes , June vol. 29 no. 1 2015; (p. 117-127)
'Using The Collected Poems (1981), Schetrumpf investigates Sylvia Plath's use of lyric address and her confrontation with patriarchal oppression, post-Holocaust existence, depression, and suicide. She also examines two of the recurring symbols that lead to the primal core of her poetry. She then compare Plath's content and methods with Bruce Beaver's experiments with various forms of lyric address, confrontation with mental illness, politicized war, and postmodern violence, and experiences of aging and death in Letters to Live Poets (1969). Finally, she examines two of the encoded symbols of the many that litter Beaver's landscapes of Manly.' (Publication abstract)
