24 Prince St.
Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA 02130
This unassuming Jamaica Plain home was the site of probably the happiest years of confessional poet Sylvia Plath’s life. This is the home where Plath was born, and lived in the earliest years of her life, before the death of her father. axs.-plath-boston

London played a central role in her life, too. It was here that she slept with her future husband, fellow poet Ted Hughes, for the first time on 23 March 1956, at a borrowed flat in Bloomsbury. Plath wrote in her journal of the ‘sleepless holocaust night with Ted’, while Hughes would later immortalise his dates with her at the flat in his poem 18 Rugby Street.
