Plath was an excellent poet but is known to many for this largely autobiographical novel. The Bell Jar tells the story of a gifted young woman's mental breakdown beginning during 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 behind this scathingly sad, honest and perfectly- written book, which remains one of the best-told tales of a woman's descent into insanity. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
"'In looking at the madness of the world and the world of madness [this book] forces us to consider the great question posed by all truly realistic fiction: what is reality and how can it be confronted?'

Plath should have stuck to poetry. This book was a depressing version of The Great Gatsby, centered around an arrogant prig who no reader could care about. Read morePublished 2 months ago by ReviewMonkey
