Die Glasglocke [The Bell Jar]

(Frankfurt): Suhrkamp Verlag, (1969).

Price: $125.00

Hardcover. Early German edition (fifth through seventh thousand). Fine in a modestly age-toned, else near fine dustwrapper. Pseudonymously published in England just before her suicide, and not published in America for nearly a decade. A nice copy of this thinly veiled autobiography of alienation which has become a contemporary classic of the literature of women's oppression.

American poet whose best-known poems are carefully crafted pieces noted for their personal imagery and intense focus. Many concern such themes as alienation, death, and self-destruction. She was little known at the time of her death by suicide, but by the mid-1970s she was considered a major contemporary poet. - Merriam-Webster's Encyclopedia of LiteratureAmore
