Beschreibung

Liberty fabric covered editions bring classics from the Faber backlist together with important modern titles, putting them in conversation and celebrating both the history and the future of Faber & Faber.

Sylvia Plath's groundbreaking semi-autobiographical novel offers an intimate, honest and often wrenching glimpse into mental illness. The Bell Jar broke the boundaries between fiction and reality and helped cement Sylvia Plath's place as an enduring feminist icon. Celebrated for its darkly humorous, razor sharp portrait of 1950s society, it continues to resonate with readers today as testament to the universal human struggle to claim one's rightful place in the world.

In 2019, Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar will be reissued as a special hardback edition with a Liberty fabric from the year of the novel's first publication (1963); Milkman, winner of the 2018 Man Booker Prize, will be reissued with a bespoke Liberty fabric cover, created uniquely for Anna Burns.

ABOUT THE FABRIC
Originally inspired by an impression sheet from Liberty's print works at Merton Abbey. First produced in 1961, this low-colour geometric design features abstract broken lines which almost create a subtle and wavy camouflage effect.

Sylvia Plath (1932-1963) was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and studied at Smith College. In 1955 she went to Cambridge University on a Fulbright scholarship, where she met and later married Ted Hughes. She published one collection of poems in her lifetime,
The Colossus (1960), and a novel,
The Bell Jar (1963);
Ariel was published posthumously in 1965. Her
Collected Poems, which contains her poetry written from 1956 until her death, was published in 1981 and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for poetry.

Ein schnell lesbarer, ausgesprochen wichtiger Roman, der natürlich sehr beklemmend wirkt, aber gerade damit unheimlich wichtige Themen aufgreift. Neben den Schwierigkeiten der weiblichen Selbstfindung nimmt das Thema Depression einen Großteil der Geschichte ein - und die Autorin beleuchtet die Zustände der damaligen Zeit mit schockierender Genauigkeit. Sehr bewegend.

I'm on the fence about this one. I truly don't know what I'm feeling right now, after finishing this book. It's just that I didn't connect with any of the characters. Everyone except Esther was not developed and complex at all. I know that it fits the story that the characters are shallow, it still bothered me, though. I ... I'm on the fence about this one. I truly don't know what I'm feeling right now, after finishing this book. It's just that I didn't connect with any of the characters. Everyone except Esther was not developed and complex at all. I know that it fits the story that the characters are shallow, it still bothered me, though. I myself do not know how it is like to be depressed so I can only judge with my very limited experience that Esther's descent into depression was portrayed accurately. This book was originally published in 1963 and for its time period it was quite a progressive novel: a female protagonist who rejects the gender roles of the 1950s put upon her. Who does not just want to be a baby-popping housewife. In that way I could relate to Esther very easily. While I could not really appreciate Esther's story I would still recommend this book.
