The Bell Jar (Modern Classics)

Sylvia Plath


The Bell Jar chronicles the crack-up of Esther Greenwood: outstanding, appealing, drastically proficient, and winning, yet slowly going less than -- perhaps for the final time. Sylvia Plath masterfully attracts the reader into Esther's breakdown with such depth that Esther's madness turns into thoroughly actual or even rational, as possible and available an event as going to the films. Such deep penetration into the darkish and harrowing corners of the psyche is a unprecedented accomplishment and has made The Bell Jar a haunting American classic.

This P.S. variation beneficial properties an additional sixteen pages of insights into the publication, together with writer interviews, steered studying, and more.
