Sylvia Plath

"Throughout their marriage Sylvia had tried to be on good terms with her in-laws, but now she turned against them, calling them 'inhuman Jewy working class bastards', though the Hugheses were not of course Jewish. At the same time that she could declare 'I think I might well be a Jew' in her poem 'Daddy', in her letters she would use the word Jew derogatorily."
(Ur Koren/Negev, Lover of Unreason - Assia Wevill, Sylvia Plath's rival and Ted Hughes Doomed Love)
