Excerpt Headline: A Sylvia Plath story "lost" in a university library.
Next month HarperCollins will publish a book version of a short story that Sylvia Plath wrote in 1952, Mary Ventura and the Ninth Kingdom. As a 20-year-old undergraduate at Smith College, Plath had submitted the story to Mademoiselle magazine, which rejected it. According to The New Yorker, Plath's estate didn't know about the story until years later when Judith Glazer-Raymo, an academic and critic, found it while digging through the archives at Indiana University's rare book and manuscript library. But the Lilly Library posted yesterday on Twitter that the story was not "lost," as The New Yorker reported. It was kept in the library's collection complete with a description in the finding aid. The library tweeted, "(whispers) You know when materials are in libraries and archives, they are actually the opposite of "lost."
