Although she is known to us now primarily as a poet, Sylvia Plath wrote a substantial body of prose, most of it in the form of short stories. Johnny Panic and the Bible of Dreams highlights Plath's fierce concentration on craft, the vitality of her intelligence, and the yearnings of her imagination. Featuring an introduction by Plath's husband, the late poet laureate Ted Hughes, these early writings also reflect themes and images Plath would fully realize in her poetry. This collection of her best short stories, essays, and journal excerpts showcases the genius of Sylvia Plath.
