Unsung Women of Literary History
CN: domestic violence, mental illness stigma.
In this episode, Tara provides a brief history lesson on the overshadowed wives of several famous authors, Zelda Fitzgerald, Sophia Tolstoy, and Vera Nabokov, leading into an overview of the tumultuous relationship between Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes. These women either made significant uncredited contributions to their husbands' works, were brilliant writers themselves, or both.
