In Accident of Hope, Professor Dawn Skorczewski connects excerpts from the tapes of Anne Sexton's psychotherapy with contemporaneous selections from her poetry to offer a unique perspective on the artist's inner experience and creative process. The book not only invites a reappraisal of Anne Sexton the writer but also offers a rare view of the evolution of psychoanalytic treatment in the United States.
