Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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. A deep penetration into the darkest and most harrowing corners of the human psyche, The Bell Jar is an extraordinary accomplishment and a haunting American classic.

Synopsis:

This extraordinary work--echoing Plath's own experiences as a rising writer/editor in the early 1950s--chronicles the nervous breakdown of Esther Greenwood: brilliant, beautiful, and enormously talented, but slowly going under, and maybe for the last time.

Synopsis:

The Bell Jar is Sylvia Plaths shocking, realistic, and intensely emotional novel of a woman falling into the grips of insanity, now available in an Olive Edition—a lower-priced small format edition with a hip and beautiful package design. A haunting American classic, The Bell Jar chronicles the crack-up of Esther Greenwood: brilliant, beautiful, enormously talented, and successful, but slowly going under—maybe for the last time.
