About this Item

Fine cloth copy (slightest suggestion only of dust-dulling to the panel edges) in a near-fine, very slightly edge-nicked and dust-dulled dw, now mylar-sleeved. Not price-clipped. Remains particularly and surprisingly well-preserved overall; tight, bright, clean and strong.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 296 pages; Physical description: 296p : illus ; 22cm. Summary: Esther Greenwood is at college and is fighting two battles, one against her own desire for perfection in all things - grades, boyfriend, looks, career - and the other against remorseless mental illness. As her depression deepens she finds herself encased in it, bell-jarred away from the rest of the world. This is the story of her journey back into reality. Highly readable, witty and disturbing, The Bell Jar is Sylvia Plath's only novel and was originally published under a pseudonym in 1963. What it has to say about what women expect of themselves, and what society expects of women, is as sharply relevant today as it has always been. Subjects: Women college students - United States - Fiction. Depression, Mental - Fiction. Depression, Mental - United States - Fiction. American fiction - 20th century.
