About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Bell Jar, The by PLATH, Sylvia (1932-1963).

Description:

First Printing under the author's name. Small 8vo; [4], 258pp. Publisher's black cloth, spine lettered in gilt (still brilliant); illustrated dust jacket priced at 25s. A Very Fine copy, square, tight and unmarked, in a Fine jacket. Often identified as the second edition, this is, in fact, the third, the second being a reissue by Heinemann under its Contemporary Fiction imprint, still bearing the pseudonym 'Victoria Lucas,' in 1964. Plath's only novel, this roman à clef was published just one month before her suicide under the pseudonym Victoria Lucas. It "provides a savvy critique of gender and class relations in Cold War America, a psychological journey through illness and recuperation, a complex exploration of female identity . . . Although Plath dismissed the book as a 'potboiler' when describing it to her mother, probably because she knew it would hurt her mother's feelings, she felt excited while writing it, and it remains an impressive achievement today." (Lit. Encyclopedia) Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description New York : Harper & Row, 1971. First American Edition. 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. 1 Kg. 296 pp. Seller Inventory # 204557
