Forgotten no more …

… Early Anne Sexton works rediscovered after 60 years | Books | The Guardian. (Hat tip, Rus Bowden.)

All five pieces appeared in the Christian Science Monitor between July 1958 and July 1959, which is where Zachary Turpin, assistant professor of American literature at the University of Idaho, discovered them while searching Sexton’s digital archive. Turpin, who has previously uncoveredlost writings by Walt Whitman, worked with Erin Singer, assistant professor of English at Louisiana Tech, to look for any mention of the works.
