This eBook edition of "The Bell Jar (Unabridged)" has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. Esther Greenwood, a young woman from the suburbs of Boston, gains a summer internship at a prominent magazine in New York City, under editor Jay Cee; however, Esther is neither stimulated nor excited by either the big city or the glamorous culture and lifestyle that girls her age are expected to idolize and emulate. She instead finds her experience to be frightening and disorienting. From hereafter her mental state keeps deteriorating until she starts feeling helpless as if being kept inside a glass bell jar! The Bell Jar is the only novel written by the American writer and poet Sylvia Plath. Originally published under the pseudonym "Victoria Lucas" in 1963, the novel is semi-autobiographical, with the names of places and people changed. The book is often regarded as a roman à clef because the protagonist's descent into mental illness parallels Plath's own experiences with what may have been clinical depression or bipolar II disorder. Plath died by suicide a month after its first UK publication. The novel was published under Plath's name for the first time in 1967 and was not published in the United States until 1971, in accordance with the wishes of both Plath's husband, Ted Hughes, and her mother.

Who is the iconic rebel? Is it a character from the legacy of James Dean or Clint Eastwood, or maybe a Beat Generation writer? Is it a woman? Modern pop culture and the media have distorted the notion of rebellion. Classic male rebels appear sexy, nomadic—naturally rebellious—while unorthodox women are reprimanded, made to fit unrealistic roles and body images, or mocked for their decadence and self-indulgence. In order to appreciate our legacy of female rebels—and create space for future cultural icons—the notion rebellion needs to be revaluated. From Madonna and Marilyn Monroe to the reality TV stars and hotel chain heiresses of the twenty-first century, Hellions analyzes the celebration of pop culture icons and its impact on notions of gender. Looking at these past examples, Hellions expands upon the definition of rebellion and offers a new understanding of what would be considered rebellious in the celebrity-obsessed media culture of the twenty-first century.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2021 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 5.0, , language: English, abstract: This research paper is about Sylvia Plath and her writings. The early writings show the process of Plath’s coming into a period in which her initial idealism faded as she began to identify with the role of a creator, the writer, and especially, the aesthete. Although she was still a student at that stage, her construction of identity became more complicated and complex due to the nurturing questions of gender and sexuality. It is also worth including, with regards to the aspect of feminism, some references from Foucault’s The History of Sexuality, who questions so-called repressive hypothesis. The problem of gender roles is also extensively discussed in another bibliographical position written by Adrienne Rich and titled Compulsory heterosexuality and Lesbian Existence. Here the author presents how the society actually pursue a threatening politics. Yet, Elaine Tyler May and Deborah Nelson reveal that the culture of the fifties displayed contradictory views on certain issues concerning ideas about "citizen and state, self and society", which led to the politics of containment (further elucidated in Chapter One). Nelson discusses in Pursuing Privacy in Cold War America in which ways privacy trapped woman in particular. While the term privacy presumably indicated self-sufficiency, it came to symbolize "isolation, loneliness, domination and routine" for many confessional writers, linking Sylvia Plath as a confessional writer to the Foucauldian hypothesis, and arguing that confession does not lead to freedom, as the private is already penetrated by power.
