Unpublished Plath

The online Blackbird journal is to shortly feature a just-discovered sonnet by Sylvia Plath. Says this report: "The ironic poem pokes fun at people who consult tea leaves or psychics, hoping they will foretell impending disasters, but says that real life is seldom as dramatic or romantic as a fairy tale, said Gregory Donovan, a VCU English professor and Blackbird co-editor." It's entitled 'Ennui', and was written "while pondering themes in F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel The Great Gatsby."
