The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath Book Summary

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. Sylvia Plath masterfully draws the reader into Esther's breakdown with such intensity that Esther's insanity becomes completely real and even rational, as probable and accessible an experience as going to the movies. Such deep penetration into the dark and harrowing corners of the psyche is an extraordinary accomplishment and has made The Bell Jar a haunting American classic.

Suicide. Really made me want to cry for her because aren’t we all just a little bit insane and don’t we all need just a little bit of an asylum in our lives?

Racist and Homophobic. I very much enjoyed this book. I felt as though it spoke to me and it was a beautiful piece except the only problem is that it is littered in racist and homophobic descriptions of characters.

An unusual and important classic. I read The Bell Jar some forty odd years ago and also read Sylvia Plath’s other works. After this “re-reading” I discerned a deeper theme. I had a more mature, emotionally connected reaction than I did at a much younger age.

The Bell Jar Revealed. A frightening telling of descent into madness & possible return to health. Truly scary. It’s sad to be left with no resolution, but, perhaps realistic.

Real. Something real.

It was good I guess?. I didn’t really understand it. I still read the whole book thinking at the end maybe I would understand. I guess it just is mental illness awareness? I don’t know, I didn’t understand it much. I understood what was going on and the storyline but I just don’t understand the significance. I guess that’s life though.

Gloomy. I don’t know?

“I am, I am, I am “. The way Plath describes her journey through college and her fall due to self doubt and sabotage is very touching. She connects very subtle human emotions to nature, which makes reading her work dreamy and magical.

Amazing Feminist Read. Very empowering book

Worth the read 100%. Kind of sad at times but so well written and worth the read for sure!
