A day in the life of… Anne Sexton

February 16, 2011

It has been recently brought to my attention that poet Anne Sexton’s doppleganger is Adam Brody of the OC.  While initially my response was to laugh hysterically, I began to realize that I might actually take that as a huge compliment. Let’s be honest… Adam Brody is a serious pretty boy. Looking for proof? Look no further!

This is totally a compliment

Pretty good match, eh? And no, they are not family. Brody was born several years after Sexton died.

For those of you who may not be familiar with Anne Sexton, she wrote incredible poetry from the mid 1950s through 1974 when she killed herself via carbon monoxide inhalation. Her work was rather dark, but she was extremely talented with words. My personal favorite set of her poems is Transformations, which turns Grimm’s Fair Tales completely upside-down. Check out some of these poems here.

While, yes, she obviously had some emotional issues, you’ve gotta hand it to her… she had style. Some of this can probably be credited to the fact that she actually started her career as a model, and didn’t get into poetry until years later.
