American poet Anne Sexton (1928-1974), who was sexually abused in childhood and committed suicide at the age of 46, suffered from anorexia and depression. Anne Sexton spent years locked in a depression, attempting suicide nine times before she succeeded. She managed to put words to feelings no one else could explain in her poetry.
