    There are many who have read The Bell Jar and absolutely loved it I am gladly considering myself one of them I was a little caught of guard when I read a few reviews of The Bell Jar comparing it to The Catcher in the Rye stating how it s the female version of it I liked Catcher but I know there are many people who didn t and upon hearing that may be similar to Catcher not have the desire to read it I assure you, The

    I feel like I owe Sylvia Plath an apology This is a book I actively avoided for years because so many people namely female classmates who wanted to be perceived as painfully different or terminally misunderstood or on the verge of absolutely losing their teenage shit lauded the virtues of this book and how it, like, so totally spoke to them in places they didn t even know they had ears My own overly judgmental high sch

    I saw my life branching out before me like the green fig tree in the story From the tip of every branch, like a fat purple fig, a wonderful future beckoned and winked One fig was a husband and a happy home and children, and another fig was a famous poet and another fig was a brilliant professor, and another fig was Ee Gee, the amazing editor, and another fig was Europe and Africa and South America, and another fig was Co

    There is this scene in Chapter 10 of The Bell Jar where Esther Greenwood decides to write a novelMy heroine would be myself, only in disguise She would be called Elaine Elaine I counted the letters on my fingers There were six letters in Esther, too It seemed a lucky thingI cannot help wondering, is that what Sylvia Plath thought when she wrote The Bell Jar Did she, like Esther, sit on a breezeway in an old nightgown waiting

    I ve never shied away from depressing material, but there s a difference between the tone serving the story, and a relentlessly depressing work that goes entirely nowhere I know it can be viewed as a glimpse into Plath s mind, but I would rather do a lot of things, some quite painful, than read this again It hurt to get through it, and I think it s self indulgent and serves no real artistic purpose Which is truly a shame, as I

    My dad went mad in the early seventies when my mom filed for divorce and took up with another man after 12 yrs of marriage He ended up in a place called Glenn Eden here in Michigan and went through a dozen orelectric shock treatments, I remember visiting him through a window from outside the place He eventually recovered and remarried, led a normal life, but this book was kind of frightening to me, remembering that time, the atm

    It s been a number of years since I last read Sylvia Plath s Bell Jar What I d remembered most was how well Plath had established the mood for this story by weaving the electrocutions of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg with the mental breakdown of her heroine, Esther Greenwood But the story is definitely about Esther, her ambition, and her own feelings of inadequacy, even though viewed from the outside Esther would be seen as a success

    Everything she said was like a secret voice speaking straight out of my own bones.A light at the end of a tunnel May be A flicker of hope Perhaps A cloud with a silver lining Possibly Eventually it s the doubt that remains a constant companion while one is busy gathering shreds of a life which apparently turns into something unexpected, something frail, something blurred, something sour, something like sitting under a Bell Jar.

    I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us If the book we are reading doesn t wake us up with a blow on the head, what are we reading it for we need the books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we lovedthan ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us. Franz Kafka January 27, 1
