1) The bell jar
When Esther Greenwood wins an internship, she is elated, believing she will finally realise her dream to become a writer. But in between the cocktail parties and piles of manuscripts, her life begins to slide out of control. She finds herself spiralling into depression and eventually a suicide attempt, as she grapples with difficult relationships and a society which refuses to take women's aspirations seriously.
Seeking to restore the selection and arrangement originally intended by Plath at the time of her death, this edition of her final works features a facsimile of her complete working drafts of the title poem provided to offer insight into her creative process.
