Anne Sexton

Anne Sexton was an American poet whose work is usually grouped with other confessional writers such as Sylvia Plath and Robert Lowell. She struggled with depression for much of her life and took up writing after being encouraged to do so by her therapist. Her first collection was To Bedlam and Part Way Back (1960) and her final one, The Death Notebooks, was published in 1974 (the year in which she committed suicide).
