No Evil Star collects the best of Anne Sexton's prose and traces her development as a literary artist. Beginning with Sexton's experiences in Robert Lowell's classroom at Boston University in 1958 and closing with a 1974 interview in which, now the acclaimed poet, discusses teaching her own students the craft of poetry. The collection spans Sexton's short but prolific poetic career, from the publication of To Bedlam and Part Way Back to her posthumously published collections.
