Sylvia Plath commits suicide at 30

11 Feb, 1963

Sylvia Plath dies after she turns the gas on her oven on and leaves her upper body inside the oven. Her death is not unexpected to those who know her depression or her poetry. Her death is not widely reported, due to the consideration of suicide as shameful.
