THE BELL JAR REVISITED
I was recently reminded of Sylvia Plath, after a walk past The Barbizon Hotel, and decided to revisit The Bell Jar, a book I read years ago and in a very different time in my life. I was much younger. This time around, I discovered the audiobook version read by Maggie Gyllenhaal. For me, her voice completely embodies that of Esther Greenwood, essentially that of Plath herself. Superb. And Plath’s prose is as resonant as ever. I still love it.
