Inspired by the tortured soul that was Sylvia Plath and her poetry, "Learning to Drive with Sylvia Plath" imagines the lessons she might have taught to her son while teaching him to drive. The poem plays on both themes and rhythms found in Plath's poetry as well as aspects of her thoughts and life.
