Job Description

This will be used as a practice TOEFL (Test Of English as Foreign Language) test.

There are some questions that will need to be recorded as well (included in wordcount) about the lecture - to be recorded in a different accent, if possible.

The lecture is on Sylvia Plath, as if spoken by a university lecturer.

Thank you

-----------------------

Today we’re gonna look at the life and some of the works of one of America’s finest modern female poets, Sylvia Plath.

At the time of her death in 1963 Sylvia Plath was on the verge of the critical success and recognition that she had sought for most of her life. Her first novel ‘The Bell Jar’ had just been published and the publication of her collection of poems ‘ Ariel’ had just been agreed.

These poems, which were mostly written during the last year of her life, chronicle the traumatic developments taking place in her personal life and were to make for her a reputation as a first rate poet. But it wasn’t until 1982, almost twenty years after her death, that her posthumously published ‘Collected poems’ won the Pulitzer Prize for literature. Since this time the fascination and intrigue with her work has continued to grow. Very few modern poets have captured the popular imagination as much as Plath, even to the extent that in 2003 a movie was made about her life and her intense relationship with husband and fellow poet Ted Huges.
