Sylva Plath's classic novel, The Bell Jar, was published 50 years ago this year. I was an undergraduate at the University of Wisconsin - Madison when I first read this book, and that was quite a while ago! It may be that this anniversary year is the right time to re-read The Bell Jar. It will be interesting to see how my reaction to the story has changed with time and experience.
If you are elect to use The Bell Jar as a book club selection, Harper Collins has a discussion guide for for book .
