New Plath Sonnet

An unpublished sonnet supposedly written by Sylvia Plath was discovered by a graduate student. The sonnet -- named "Ennui" -- was supposedly written in Plath's senior year at Smith and ponders the themes in F Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. Look for it to be published tomorrow in Blackbird, an online journal. As a teaser, it begins:
Tea leaves thwart those who court catastrophe,
designing futures where nothing will occur.
