The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

I’ve read similarly themed books about the perspective of a mentally ill peraon.  This was a bit different, I think to the average reader without knowledge of mental illness it may not resonate with them.  She wrote from the perspective of a woman who was suffering, with clinical “lack of insight” into her own illness.  Which is interesting because it’s part autobiographical.  So when it was written was she suffering from lack of insight or had she gained enough to write the story clearly from a perspective of wellness?   Very intriguing.
