Bradley "We know more about war than we know about peace,more about killing than we know about living" George bernard shaw "Miracles, in the sense of phenomena we cannot explain, surround us on every hand: But I am one helluva stud. My mother thanks you. My father thanks you.
I am gladly considering myself one of them. I was a little caught of guard when I read a few reviews of The Bell Jar comparing it to The Catcher in the Rye stating how it's the female version of it. I liked Catcher but I know there are many people who didn't and upon hearing that may be similar to Catcher not have the desire to read it.
I assure you, The Bell Jar is a book all on it's own and should not be compared to any other b There are many who have read The Bell Jar and absolutely loved it. I assure you, The Bell Jar is a book all on it's own and should not be compared to any other book When I first started reading the book I was a little put off, feeling it was an extremely pretensious novel.
Her descriptions were crisp and precise, often using words that one rarely hears spoken or even read. I went into the novel knowing that Plath was a poet and felt that at first the book was just another form of her poetry and her showing off sylvia plath quotes writing author writing abilities.
But that only remained within the first two pages, because after that I became absorbed. The writing that I was a little sketchy about at first helped me visualize the setting and get to know the characters.
And though Plath never really described many characters as to their personality, I began to feel I knew them all intimately.
Strangely enough, if you remember in my last review, what bothered me most about The Good Earth did not bother me in The Bell Jar. Because the Esther, the character we are following, is slowly descending into madness, time no longer matters. There are a few times I was confused about the timeline, but it did not upset me.
The book really spoke to me because of my own personal experiences with depression and suicide. It spoke to me as a woman and my views on sex and the confusion I'm sure most other girls out there face.
It's amazing that this book was written and published over 30 years ago, really, when a new woman was coming out into the world. I have a feeling that this book helped women realize that they're not alone, and brought things to light that most people have commonly shoved aside; women and men.
But what else is amazing is how relevant these topics still are today. Specifically with suicide, and specifically about the virtue and pureness of women compared to men.
So I guess that is why The Bell Jar is often compared to The Catcher in the Rye, with it's discussions and writings of often controversial titles. Setting off a new generation of writers, styles, and people. There are moments when I could make a few direct comparisons between the two.
With Esther slowly seperating herself from socialization and sinking deeper into her own thoughts and depression.
Analyzing things that go on around her and her surroundings. Very reminscent of Perks. If you feel you're suffering from depression, madness, confusion about topics pertaining to society and sex, or just looking for a good read, The Bell Jar is definetly the book for you.
I also advise, if you're seriously suffering from depression, to get help for yourself. There is no shame in it, and getting help is better than ending your life.
Even if you need to go on medication, DO NOT feel ashamed, especially if it's going to help you even more.How to Write Literary Analysis The Literary Essay: A Step-by-Step Guide.
