Anne Sexton is by far my favorite poet. I've spent hour upon hour reading and re-reading her work and always coming away with a new perspective on the woman.
While Peter Gabriel is one of my favorite musicians, I had absolutely no idea that Mercy Street was about Anne. Of course, if I'd taken the time to actually read Diane Middlebrook's biography of Anne Sexton (rather than parking it on my bookshelf to collect dust), I'd probably have known that. Well, I'll be listening to Mercy Street on my iPod with new ears tonight while driving home from work.
