Joshua Radin and Sylvia Plath

Another positive reference to Sylvia Plath can be found in Joshua Radin's mellow song "These Photographs." Radin, who compares his lover to many admirable famous women (including, aside from Plath, Simone de Beauvoir and Mary Cassatt), establishes that to be placed among the ranks of these women is one of the highest possible compliments.

Song © Joshua Radin from his album We Were Here, released 6/13/06 by Sony.

You're Sylvia Plath
As you drift from the bath.
I hand you a robe and
So it goes, the moment'll pass.
