Red Silk (2011)


Anne Sexton was a confessional poet, a friend and colleague of Sylvia Plath and a winner of the Pulitzer Prize. She put words to the thoughts and actions of the early 1960s feminists.

Martin, her first psychiatrist, diagnosed her as depressed. He suggested that she use writing and medication as a cure. When Martin engaged another psychiatrist to treat her in his absence, a bizarre and dangerous triangle was created.
