Son Of Sylvia Plath Commits Suicide: All In The Family

Nicholas Hughes, a marine biologist and son of poet Sylvia Plath, killed himself 46 years after his mother gassed herself while he slept. His stepmother, Assia Wevill, also killed herself, almost 40 years ago to the day.

Sylvia Plath took her own life in 1963. Her husband, the poet Ted Hughes, had recently left her for Assia Wevill, another poet's wife, and Plath was struggling to make ends meet during an especially harsh winter. Assia Wevill helped Hughes raise Nicholas and his sister, until she too committed suicide.

Nicholas Hughes was 47.


This Ted Hughes guy must have a strange effect on those around him. Or, there's something in the water...
