The Bell Jar | Sylvia Plath
post image

And now, for the third time, I'm cozying up with one of my all-time #favorite novels! I read #TheBellJar my senior year of high school, again when I was 25, and now at 30. This journey may be about Esther's struggle and self-discovery, but every time I read it I feel like part of this story is my own. How does one decide what direction to take in life? Can you restart at any time? Why can't I have choices? Commitment and adventure?

Day 2: #NewYork (all of these books are set in NY) #Aprella

#TheBellJar “chronicles the crack-up of the brilliant, beautiful, talented, and successful Esther Greenwood.. #SylviaPlath masterfully draws the reader into Esther's breakdown with such intensity that her insanity becomes completely real and even rational...Such deep penetration into the dark and harrowing corners of the psyche... has made The Bell Jar a haunting American classic.” #TBR

#thebelljar by #sylviaplath is one of my all time favorite novels! I am hoping to make the time to reread it this year. It‘s such a great book with a very accurate representation of depression. I highly recommend this one if you haven‘t read it yet!✨

"I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, "This is what it is to be happy."
~Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
One of my favorites! Have you read much Plath?

I pulled #TheBellJar out of the Mason jar! I tried this new method for deciding what to read next. My brother recommended this book to me, so let's give it a shot!

Despite the Chinese whispers of a novel that's tough to read, one that's so sad and emotional utter strength is needed in order to maintain your own sanity. But Sylvia Plath writes through the autobiographical voice of Esther, who undoubtedly has issues regarding feminism and mental health. This novel was poetic beyond words and a brilliant read.
