Three women by Sylvia Plath

Three women by Sylvia Plath

Sylvia Plath wrote, Three Women: a Poem for Three Voices, originally written for radio broadcast (BBC).

Three Women, each describes a different experience about maternity: the first character has a normal birth, the second has a miscarriage and the third is a student who gives up her baby for adoption.

Nórdica libros (spanish editorial) has published this year this poem Three Voices in an edition which is in two languages, english and spanish. This edition also has illustrations.

The illustrations I have submitted are for the SECOND VOICE, they are part of this project that has been published for the 50th anniversary of the death of Sylvia Plath.
