On 25 February 1956, twenty-three-year-old Sylvia Plath walked into a party and immediately spotted Ted Hughes. This encounter - now one of the most famous in all literary history - was recorded by Plath in her journal, where she described Hughes as a 'big, dark, hunky boy'. Sylvia viewed Ted as something of a colossus, and to this day his enormous shadow has obscured Plath's life and work. The sensational aspects of the Plath-Hughes relationship have dominated the cultural landscape to such an extent that their story has taken on the resonance of a modern myth. After Plath's suicide in February 1963, Hughes became Plath's literary executor, the guardian of her writings, and, in effect responsible for how she was perceived. But Hughes did not think much of Plath's prose writing, viewing it as a 'waste product' of her 'false self', and his determination to market her later poetry - poetry written after she had begun her relationship with him - as the crowning glory of her career, has meant that her other earlier work has been marginalised. Before she met Ted, Plath had lived a complex, creative and disturbing life. Her father had died when she was only eight, she had gone out with literally hundreds of men, had been unofficially engaged, had tried to commit suicide and had written over 200 poems. Mad Girl's Love Songwill trace through these early years the sources of her mental instabilities and will examine how a range of personal, economic and societal factors - the real disquieting muses - conspired against her. Drawing on exclusive interviews with friends and lovers who have never spoken openly about Plath before and using previously unavailable archives and papers, this is the first book to focus on the early life of the twentieth century's most popular and enduring female poet. Mad Girl's Love Songreclaims Sylvia Plath from the tangle of emotions associated with her relationship with Ted Hughes and reveals the origins of her unsettled and unsettling voice, a voice that, fifty years after her death, still has the power to haunt and disturb.

This book is a cultural history of the nineteenth-century songster: pocket-sized anthologies of song texts, usually without musical notation. It examines the musical, social, commercial and aesthetic functions songsters served and the processes by which they were produced and disseminated, the repertory they included, and the singers, printers and entrepreneurs that both inspired their manufacture and facilitated their consumption. Taking an international perspective, chapters focus on songsters from Ireland, North America, Australia and Britain and the varied public and private contexts in which they were used and exploited in oral and print cultures.

“Yes, but later, when they speak of her, what do they say?” I asked. “Oh hell, I don’t know. I just fill the glasses. Man, this is the kind of talk that makes a barkeep like me goofy. Mostly, I keep the customers on the other side of the counter, but she, she can’t be stopped – comes over the top and just rips your spleen.” “Fill the glasses. Mop the bar. You probably know, they’re closing this place next month, and I’m out of work with no prospects, because the urban renewal wrecking ball is knocking down, not just this joint, but the whole Avenue, and, and all I’m doing is worrying what’s going to happen to Abby, but damn it, I can’t help it, this place connect her to Whitey, and all the rest of us to her.” “Ahhh ...” He let out a deep sigh, and then leaned over the bar and used his big whisper. “Ah, but this woman did it all ... And so they ... They tell of the things she did for Whitey. They tell of her exploits, of her saving his life, and her avenging his death – of her thrusting that heavy auger. And they make up things, sensitive, personal things – lavender baths, rose petal pillows – things no one could possibly know, but we all listen and nod our approval. And now the wrecking ball is coming. And now they ask what will happen ...” “Look, that’s her, she comes now. Just look at her. My, oh my,” he slowly shakes his head. “Ah, I’ll tell you what they, they ... they tell of her honor, grace, and beauty. See how she moves, how she takes that stool.” He stood to his full height and hurried down the counter to pour her drinks. I sipped mine, listening, waiting ....

A Song in the Night is a verse-by-verse devotional commentary of a true story. Of a sensual, marital, love story. Of a shepherd married to a shepherdess, probably Abishag of I King's 1 and 2 and a seducer who would distract the girl's attention from her husband-lover, her Savior. Solomon is the culprit here for these events took place during his time of grievous, spiritual demise. A time recorded when God Himself pled for the king's spiritual renewal. Captive in Solomon's harem, too, the Daughters of Jerusalem constantly witness the girl's solvent testimony - one of watching, waiting, praying for rescue via her husband-lord's soon return. They become increasingly aware that the girl's husband is Messiah to her and eventually laud the truth of it themselves. A reunion ensues later as Shepherd and Bride return together to celebrate with The Daughters portending the prophetic Dance of Mahanaim, that is -"of two camps". A time yet future when the Judeo-Christian ethic will joyously become one ethic, one ethos, one epoch! Israel and The Church together, forever, happily encompassing Jerusalem. While Yeshua/Shepherd graciously sits – the King! A Song in the Night will clearly present the "The Song". A book which for centuries has been left unattended, not understood, not interpreted, and archived into abysmal ambiguity. Read on, for to the Lord all song of praise is due. For in Him our song begins and ends.
