Plath

Plath
As in Welcome to Plathville.

Despite being around since 2019, I have only recently heard of them. I'm guessing this is the television family replacing the Duggars?

Anyone have any insight into Plath?

RE: Plath
Sounds like something you want to avoid.

Don't mess with Suzie, she has the Plath.

I've watched it.

Pretty looney family dynamics in that one. The father is a goofy, grinning idiot as far as I can tell. The mother is a bitch who doesn't like her only daughter-in-law because she's too wild. But a couple of the older kids are a lot wilder so I am a bit confused by the difference in how they are treated.

Religion is a part of the show, but kind of a minor part. The biggest thing is this family of kids raised basically in seclusion and now the older ones are trying to figure out how to navigate in the world.

The thread title made me think this was about Sylvia Plath. Pity, as I had a rant all ready about how much I despise her poetry.

I was thinking the same thing when I read the title.

My favorite poem of hers is called "Cut".

Cut
by Sylvia Plath


For Susan O'Neill Roe

What a thrill ---
My thumb instead of an onion.
The top quite gone
Except for a sort of a hinge

Of skin,
A flap like a hat,
Dead white.
Then that red plush.

Little pilgrim,
The Indian's axed your scalp.
Your turkey wattle
Carpet rolls

Straight from the heart.
I step on it,
Clutching my bottle
Of pink fizz.

A celebration, this is.
Out of a gap
A million soldiers run,
Redcoats, every one.

Whose side are they on?
O my
Homunculus, I am ill.
I have taken a pill to kill

The thin
Papery feeling.
Saboteur,
Kamikaze man ---

The stain on your
Gauze Ku Klux Klan
Babushka
Darkens and tarnishes and when

The balled
Pulp of your heart
Confronts its small
Mill of silence

How you jump ---
Trepanned veteran,
Dirty girl,
Thumb stump.

I once did a mashup of Plath's recording of "Daddy" and Dave Brubeck's "Kathy's Waltz." The sax solo was omitted to keep it from running over. Somehow, it worked, even if it's just in the timing of the words and not the actual content.
