The poems in Winter Trees were written in the last nine months of Sylvia Plaths life, and form part of the group from which the Ariel poems were chosen. They reveal the poet at the height of her creative powers, exhibiting the startling imagery and dramatic play for which she became known. Published posthumously in 1971, this valuable collection finds its place alongside The Colossus and Ariel in the oeuvre of a singular talent. Nearly all the poems here have the familiar Plath daring, the same feel of bits of frightened, vibrant, indignant consciousness translated instantly into words and images that blend close, experienced horror and icy, sardonic control. New Statesman A book that anyone seriously interested in poetry now must have . . . Sylvia Plaths immense gift is evident throughout. Guardian
