7th printing of the original American edition, released eight years after the pseudonymous 1963 UK publication. Edges slightly faded. 1971 Hard Cover. 296 pp. 8vo. The Bell Jar is 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.
