I was obsessed with this book when I was a kid but have not reread. Will writ e more when I do so. ( )

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath tells the story of Esther Greenwood, a brilliant young women who is slowly being devoured by her clinical depression. The book is a semi-autobiographical account of the author’s own life, a life riddled with depression and suicide attempts.

It opens in New York City where Esther is spending a month as a guest editor for a magazine, I was surprised at the lightness of tone and the humor in some of her encounters. Slowly the book turns dark and disturbing as Esther starts to unravel and is eventually unable to cope. By now she is back home in Boston and as her breakdown accelerates in intensity, she sinks deeper into her own thoughts of suicide.

The Bell Jar was an emotional and immersive experience. Plath was a poet and certainly knew how to write expressively but nevertheless, this book is a glimpse into the dark side of the mind, and of course, knowing the details of Plath’s life made this book all the more realistic and poignant. I will long remember how the author lyrically exposed her raw feelings of vulnerability and failure. ( )

‘It wouldn’t have made one scrap of a difference to me, because wherever I sat — I would be sitting under the same glass bell jar, stewing in my own sour air’

I don’t want to say I enjoyed this book, because the feelings that this book gave me were far from joy. This book was very heart wrenching and hard to read at some points. I didn’t cry, but it left me with so much upset for Sylvia and the things that she went through. Although the book is not pure fiction- the overall feeling and way she speaks in the book, you can tell she faced a lot of hardships in her life and felt like she was just stuck in this depressed air. This empty air surrounding her that she couldn’t escape. She couldn’t break the glass jar that hung above & followed her wherever she went.

I have a lot of the same feelings from this book as I did my last ‘Girl, Interrupted’. Both true stories (or mainly true) and both focused around young women who suffered from mental health. Both books made me feel for the women, while also relating to the emptiness they felt due to my experiences with depression. I wish Sylvia could have lived a longer life and been able to see her children grow up. At the same time I wish I knew her thought process through her choice of suicide. We read through this book why she did choose and wouldn’t choose specific ways to die, and maybe she way she chose was the easiest to her, and was full proof. Overall this book leaves me with a lot of sadness. I think I may read some of her poems to understand her some more.

In terms of how the book was written, it was obviously written many many years ago and the writing style was a bit hard to follow. Especially since she would jump from different points of time and then return to the same time zone and it confused me a bit. This is my only reason for not rating it 5 stars. ( )

How can I give this devastating, semi-biographical work a numerical rating? There is a portion of our society who does not need to read this book, but only to be told, repeatedly by close friends, that they are not wrong to be confused, turned about by a chaotic life, or ashamed of themselves when made to feel small and featureless as Plath was by the social machinery of modern civilization.

Figs and arrows. These are the most vivid metaphors I will take from the book: an endlessly tantalizing tree of figs, inaccessible due to our own indecision. Arrows shooting off in all directions: the adventurous spirit permitted only to men, yet equally desirable to women who are, it turns out, people too.

This book may be a good treatment for anyone who believes otherwise. ( )

I might lose some reader points here, but I could not and did not finish The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. It wasn’t the syntax that bothered me. Ms. Plath did string together some fantastic sentences. What upset me to the point where I could not continue listening was the idea that Esther was insane. I know watching her deteriorating mental health is the entire point of the novel, but her self-loathing did me in. The world today is difficult enough without listening to someone who leaves her “friend” with a shady man, who enjoys criticizing other women, and does not ask for and will not accept help from others. I know that The Bell Jar is supposed to be an essential feminist novel about the burdens society places on its women, but I didn’t find it feminist. What I heard was not just depressing but also confirmed that a woman’s strongest foe is often another woman. ( )

Esther Greenwood's account of her year in the bell jar is as clear and readable as it is witty and disturbing. It makes for a novel such as Dorothy Parker might have written if she had not belonged to a generation infected with the relentless frivolity of the college- humor magazine. The brittle humor of that early generation is reincarnated in "The Bell Jar," but raised to a more serious level because it is recognized as a resource of hysteria.

It was a queer, sultry summer, the summer they electrocuted the Rosenbergs, and I didn't know what I was doing in New York.
[Foreword] You might think that classics like The Bell Jar are immediately recognized the moment they reach a publisher's office.

That's one of the reasons I never wanted to get married. The last thing I wanted was infinite security and to be the place an arrow shoots off from. I wanted change and excitement and to shoot off in all directions myself, like the colored arrows from a Fourth of July rocket. (p. 69)
The trouble was, I hated the idea of serving men in any way.
"We'll take it up where we left off, Esther," she had said, with her sweet, martyr's smile. "We'll act as if all of this were a bad dream" A bad dream. To the person in the bell jar, blank and stopped as a dead baby, the world itself is the bad dream. A bad dream. I remembered everything. I remembered the cadavers and Doreen and the story of the fig tree and Marco's diamond and the sailor on the Common and Doctor Gordon's wall-eyed nurse and the broken thermometers and the Negro with his two kinds of beans and the twenty pounds I gained on insulin and the rock that bulged between sky and sea like a gray skull. Maybe forgetfulness, like a kind snow, should numb and cover them. But they were part of me. They were my landscape. (p. 181)
I took a deep breath, and listened to the old bray of my heart: I am, I am, I am.
I began to think that maybe it was true that when you were married and had children it was like being brainwashed, and afterward you went about numb as a slave in some private, totalitarian state. (p. 70)
