The Bell Jar

Choose two of the followin” rel=”nofollow”>ing to complete. Each response needs to in” rel=”nofollow”>include an in” rel=”nofollow”>introduction that presents a thesis, body paragraphs that defend the argument with textual evidence and explanation and a
conclusion that extends the topic. 1) The Bell Jar carries with it a comment/criticism of 1950’s parentin” rel=”nofollow”>ing, culture and worldview via Esther’s mother. Identify key quotes related to her mother’s
worldview- why is it flawed? Is this worldview still present in” rel=”nofollow”>in our culture today? 2)The Bell Jar and its complicated protagonist/narrator present that the kids aren’t all right. Happin” rel=”nofollow”>iness is a
difficult formula, if at all discernable. What does this novel teach about happin” rel=”nofollow”>iness as well as depression? 3) Doctors as heroes, villain” rel=”nofollow”>ins, buffoons or warped images through the bell jar? Usin” rel=”nofollow”>ing
textual evidence determin” rel=”nofollow”>ine what statement the novel makes about the treatment of mental illness. 4)Esther’s sexuality, or lack there of, plays a critical role throughout the course of the novel.
Usin” rel=”nofollow”>ing at least four key quotes that together span the entire novel (hence the arc of the character) chart and analyze Esther’s conflicts/conversations/thoughts regardin” rel=”nofollow”>ing sexuality. How is sex and
sexuality presented in” rel=”nofollow”>in this novel? 5)The bell jar itself as an isolated object is simple enough to characterize –a smotherin” rel=”nofollow”>ing, stiff, unbreakable case, the captive helplessly enclosed within” rel=”nofollow”>in its
glass walls. However, the embedded symbolic meanin” rel=”nofollow”>ing is slightly more obscure. Many critics view the bell jar as a symbol of society′s stiflin” rel=”nofollow”>ing constrain” rel=”nofollow”>ints that trap Sylvia Plath′s heroin” rel=”nofollow”>ine, Esther
Greenwood, within” rel=”nofollow”>in its glass dome. However, another reality is that the physical, albeit metaphorical, suffocation in” rel=”nofollow”>induced by the bell jar is a direct representation of Esther′s mental suffocation
by the unavoidable settlin” rel=”nofollow”>ing of depression upon her psyche, and that this circumstance greatly alters the way in” rel=”nofollow”>in which the entire novel can and should be perceived. Argue whether the “bell jar”
effect is a result of societal in” rel=”nofollow”>influence or her mood disorder.
