DESCRIPTION

The Bell Jar is Sylvia Plath’s groundbreaking semi-autobiographical portrait of a young woman struggling with depression as she follows her dreams to becoming a writer: the quintessential coming-of-age novel and

a must-read for all teenagers.

I was supposed to be having the time of my life.

When Esther Greenwood wins an internship on a New York fashion magazine in 1953, she is elated, believing she will finally realise her dream to become a writer. But in between the cocktail parties and piles of manuscripts, Esther’s life begins to slide out of control. She finds herself spiralling into serious depression as she grapples with difficult relationships and a society which refuses to take her aspirations seriously.

The Bell Jar , Sylvia Plath’s only novel, was originally published in 1963 under the pseudonym Victoria Lucas. The novel is partially based on Plath’s own life and descent into mental illness, and has become a modern classic.
