    Sylvia Plath ¹ 9 Free read Summary ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ¹ Sylvia Plath Characters The Bell Jar I've never shied away from depressing material but there's a difference between the tone serving the story and a relentlessly depressing work that goes entirely nowhere I know it can be viewed as a glimpse into Plath's mind but I would rather do a lot of things some uite painful than read this again It hurt to get through it and I think it's self indulgent and serves no real artistic purpose Which is truly a shame as I love a lot of Plath's

Characters The Bell Jar

Review å The Bell Jar 109 Characters The Bell Jar De glazen stolp is het pijnlijke verslag van een ambitieuze jonge vrouw die niet serieus genomen wordt door de maatschappijSylvia Plath trekt de lezer meesterlijk mee in de toenemende waanzin van Esther Greenwood in de jaren vijftig van de vorige eeuw Na een stage wordt Esther afgewezen voor haar eerste baan en trekt ze weer bij haar moeder in Daar

book I actively avoided for years because so many people namely female classmates who wanted to be perceived as painfully different or terminally misunderstood or on the verge of absolutely losing their teenage shit lauded the virtues of this book and how it like so totally spoke to them in places they didn t even know they had ears My own overly judgmental high school self could not accept even the remote possibility of actual merit lurking between the covers of something that such bland faux distraught ninnies clung to like a life raftI should probably also apologize for referring to every pair of oven mitts I ve ever owned as a pair of Sylvias but I think the lady scribe in uestion was too mired in real problems to care all that much about my sick amusement s crass reductionThe Bell Jar packed as it was with bleak truths difficult topics and wryly dark humor was not at all what I was expecting Old biases die hard I couldn t help but brace myself for a trivial tribute to

The Bell Jar

Review å The Bell Jar 109 Characters The Bell Jar Niemand heeft oog voor het kleinste detail én bezit een geweldig gevoel voor humor Esther Greenwood de hoofdpersoon en haar ambities haar dromen de mallemolen in haar hoofd die draait en draait Plath laat je moeiteloos meevoelen meeleven en bijna begrijpen hoe het voelt om Esther te zijn Wie is er gek en wie niet Waar ligt de grens wie bepaalt de norm Meer dan 50 jaar na het verschijnen van dit boek is het voor jonge vrouwen nog steeds niet evident om ongeremd anders te zijn gewoon zichzelf te zijn Een eigen koers varen wars van etiketten en vastgeroeste wegwijzers blijft gevaarlijk Daarom blijft dit boek verplichte kost voor elke vrouw die meer wil zijn dan het zoveelste schaap in de kud Everything she said was like a secret voice speaking straight out of my own bonesA light at the end of a tunnel May be A flicker of hope Perhaps A cloud with a silver lining Possibly Eventually it s the doubt that remains a constant companion while one is busy gathering shreds of a life which apparently turns into something unexpected something frail something blurred something sour something like sitting under a Bell Jar There are no promises to keep and no expectations to be fulfilled except a small desire survives somewhere a desire wishing for wings of freedom to gather their strength again to soar high in the sky and letting the old brag of heart to leap out and declare in a booming voice I am I am I amAnother book another writer and another winner I simply loved The Bell Jar I approached it weighing under the burden of my hollow prejudices and expected a story that won t surprise me in any remarkable way but Sylvia Plath She gave me a valuable gift in the form of this book I ll probably come across as heavily drenched in my emotions here but it s not every day one finds something which perfectly vocalizes the suppressed whispers of one s past and an immediate present Another case of deep connection Not exactly Just the right amount of shared feelings and a long awaited consolation that I m not the only one I felt dreadfully inadeuate The trouble was I had been inadeuate all along I simply hadn t thought about it I felt like a racehorse in a world without racetracks or a champion college footballer suddenly confronted by Wall Street and a business suit his days of glory shrunk to a little gold cup on his mantel with a date engraved on it like the date on a tombstone No self pity or depressing delusions just plain simple confession which born out of the realization after an official entry into the real world The Bell Jar is about Esther Greenwood but I would like to view that name as some sort of anagram which encompasses everyone of us within it maybe not in its entirety but in bits and parts In all likelihood nothing is there in a name and surely I can t speak for everyone else but I know that there s something in the writing style of Sylvia which holds the power of drawing readers in her tale and no matter how much one tries to break free from her words because they hurt it s almost impossible to do so Esther made me laugh with her honest descriptions of the world and the people around her She made me her accomplice in her jokes and in her secrets and she made me empathized with her and her plights but at the same time I was grateful that she was able to share her pain without appearing miserable or demanding any form of solace She is She is She is That s how I cheered for herI uttered nothing new many times while reading it but considering it as a book written 50 years ago which still resonated at such an inexplicable level with me is fascinating to think of Should I mourn at the repeated instances of histories which repeat themselves or cheer about the knowledge that there lived a girl who had a talent of telling something on behalf of most of us I m still contemplating about those uestions but I guess they ll lose their significance in time to come and only magical essence of Sylvia s words shall remain with me Piece by piece I fed my wardrobe to the night wind and flutteringly like a loved one s ashes the gray scraps were ferried off to settle here there exactly where I would never know in the dark heart of New York
