Decades after dying by her own hand, a renowned female American poet makes the news. Sessions with her psychotherapist become public, revealing accusations of abuse and other sordid details of her already legendary life. Once more, critics and readers wonder: Was she a victim? A heroine? Or—was it possible—a villain?

If you guessed that I’m talking about Sylvia Plath, you’re only half right.
