The Silent Woman" gave me additional perspective on Sylvia Plath while raising provocative questions about the nature of writing and biography. It's concise, well written, and I highly recommend it, especially to writers. Recommended even for people who are not specifically interested in Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes because of the book's insights into the nature of truth, memoirs,fiction, and biography. 11 people found this helpful.
In The Silent Woman, Janet Malcolm examines the biographies of Sylvia Plath to create a book not about Plath’s life but about her afterlife: how her estranged husband, the poet Ted Hughes, as executor of her estate, tried to serve two masters-Plath’s art and his own need for privacy.

The Silent Woman" is an astonishing feat of criticism and literary detection.
Janet Malcolm (author of Reading Chekhov, The Journalist and the Murderer, In the Freud Archives) examines the biographies of Sylvia Plath, with particular focus on Anne Stevenson's controversial Bitter Fruit, to discover how Plath became the enigma of literary history, and how the legend continues to exert such a hold on our imaginations.
Ted Hughes as Sylvia Plath’s literary executor. When Plath committed suicide, she was still married to Hughes, though the couple was separated. Thus, he inherited her literary estate and oversaw her posthumous legacy. Much of Plath’s work was unpublished while she was alive, and Hughes decided to publish some of the collections she left behind. In the biography Her Husband: Hughes and Plath - A Marriage, the book is described as author Diane Middlebrook’s portrayal of Hughes as a complicated, conflicted figure: sexually magnetic, fiercely ambitious, immensely caring, and shrewd in business.

The Silent Woman is one of the deepest, loveliest, and most problematic things Janet Malcolm has written. It is so subtle, so patiently analytical, and so true that it is difficult to envisage anyone writing again about Plath and Hughes. She is the cat who has licked the plate clean
The Silent Woman is one of the deepest, loveliest, and most problematic things Janet Malcolm has written. She is the cat who has licked the plate clean. It has an almost disabling authority about it, a finality like a father's advice. -James Wood, The Guardian (London). Not since Virginia Woolf has anyone thought so trenchantly about the strange art of biography.
