Sylvia Plath: A life in photographs: 1942-1950
Wellesley was an improvement from life in Winthrop for the Plath's. The quality of life and education were much improved in this western suburb of Boston. Plath spent a portion of each summer from 1943-1949 away at various camps. She began writing poetry and short stories too, publishing her works in school newspapers. In addition to creative writing, Plath began writing a diary. In the summer of 1950, Plath worked at a farm in nearby Dover. The next photograph gallery covers the period of 1950-1955, when Plath was an undergraduate at Smith College in Northampton.
