Sylvia Plath Reads “Daddy”

What do you get for the father who has everything? How about a healthy dose of canonical resentment, in the form of Sylvia Plath’s most famous poem, read by Plath herself, from our list of Cultural Icons?

Or, if you’d prefer something that says “I love you” with a little less rancor, you might want to go with a video that’s guaranteed to make him smile.

Happy Father’s Day!!!
