Sylvia Plath, Huffington and Hugo

Thinking of Arianna Huffington’s decision to turn her website into a Hugo Chávez fanpage, I could not help but be reminded of the words of that tortured poet, Sylvia Plath, who wrote in her celebrated poem, “Daddy”:

Not God but a swastika 
So black no sky could squeak through. 
Every woman adores a Fascist, 
The boot in the face, the brute 
Brute heart of a brute like you.
