Culture: It runs in the family, sadly: Sylvia Plath’s son commits suicide

  • He was a loving brother, a loyal friend to those who knew him and, despite the vagaries that life threw at him, he maintained an almost childlike innocence and enthusiasm for the next project or plan.
  • Frieda Hughes • Sister of Nicholas Hughes and daughter of Sylvia Plath, on Nicholas’ death by suicide in Alaska. Hughes followed in his mother’s infamous footsteps; she gassed herself to death 46 years ago, creating a literary legend in the process. • source
