“The Bell Jar”

. August 13, 2019.

Powerful images of isolation driven by an impending mental breakdown drive this classic novel by Sylvia Plath. It’s both difficult and illuminating to find yourself inside the main character’s head, where reality and the symptoms of her psychosis often mingle indistinguishably. If you’ve read the classic novel about Esther Greenwood’s struggle to maintain a promising life, you’ll love the discussion of it at Gathering Volumes, led by the Perrysburg Book Club. It’s an opportunity to learn about Plath’s life, connecting her own struggle with mental illness to Esther’s.
