The Bell Jar chronicles the crack-up of Esther Greenwood: brilliant, beautiful, enormously talented, and successful, but slowly going under — perhaps for the last time. Sylvia Plath masterfully draws the reader into Esther’s breakdown with such intensity that Esther’s insanity becomes completely real and even rational, as probable and accessible an experience as going to the movies. Such deep penetration into the dark and harrowing corners of the psyche is an atypical accomplishment and has made The Bell Jar a haunting American classic.
This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including writer interviews, advisable reading, and more.
Plath used to be a very good poet but is known to many for this in large part autobiographical novel. The Bell Jar tells the story of a gifted young woman’s mental breakdown beginning right through a summer internship as a junior editor at a magazine in New York City in the early 1950s. The real Plath committed suicide in 1963 and left in the back of this scathingly sad, honest and perfectly-written book, which remains some of the best-told tales of a woman’s descent into insanity.
