Plath, Sylvia. Very Good. Biographical Novel. US: Bantam. Paperback. Very Good. Book Description A vulnerable young girl wins a dream assignment on a big-time New York fash ion magazine and finds herself plunged into a nightmare. An autobiographica l account of Sylvia Pl ath's own mental breakdown and suicide attempt, The B ell Jar is more than a confessional novel, it is a comic but painful statem ent of what happens to a woman's aspirations in a society that refuses to t ake them seriously...a society that expects electroshock to cure the despa ir of a sensitive, questioning young artist whose search for identity becom es a terrifying d escent toward madness. Editorial Reviews Review Plath was an excellent poe t but is known to many for this largely autobiogr aphical novel. The Bell J ar tells the story of a gifted young woman's menta l breakdown beginning du ring a summer internship as a junior editor at a ma gazine in New York City in the early 1950s. The real Plath committed suicid e in 1963 and left beh ind this scathingly sad, honest and perfectly-written book, which remains one of the best-told tales of a woman's descent into i nsanity. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
