Book Review: The Bell Jar // Sylvia Plath

This novel is almost poetically depressing. Sylvia Plath takes us on the journey of Esther Greenwood, a beautiful, bright and hopeful young girl, who faces mental health troubles in 1950s America. 384 more words

The Bell Jar
by Sylvia Plath

About:
Esther Greenwood is brilliant, beautiful, enormously talented, and successful, but slowly going under—maybe for the last time. In her acclaimed and enduring masterwork, Sylvia Plath brilliantly draws the reader into Esther’s breakdown with such intensity that her insanity becomes palpably real, even rational; as accessible an experience as going to the movies. 318 more words
