Summary
The Bell Jaris a classic of American literature.  Originally published under the pseudonym "Victoria Lucas" in 1963--only a month before the author's suicide--Sylvia Plath's harrowing autobiographical novel traces a young woman's descent into an emotional breakdown.  The brilliant and disturbing story of Esther Greenwood's journey from the glamorous world of magazine publishing in New York to the isolating world of the asylum has become one of the most famous books of the late twentieth century, and still has all its power to shock and move us.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "During a sultry summer in New York, Esther Greenwood works as a junior editor on Mademoiselle, quarrels with her mother and boy- friend, and is gradually aware of her descent into madness."
