Blessed be the fruit 🍎⁣

QOTD: Did you prefer the movie over the book?⁣
⁣
I haven't read the book yet, but I think it will be hard to be the TV series 😅 ⁣
There was a movie adaptation for The Handmaid's Tale back in the 90's which was okay, but the TV series blows it out of the water. I was a little bit hesitant to watch it, but now it's become one of my favourite shows. Sisterhood is very important to me, and the show is very reflective of the troubled times we are living in now.⁣
On a lighter note, I recently got a kitten! Her name is Cupid 🏹 ⁣She is grey, tiny, and a brat. If she ever stops moving from 100 miles per hour, she might feature in one of our posts.⁣

I’m 3 wks out from my 4th surgery this yr, and I’m finally getting back to the book world.  I can’t say this is the best book to read when you’re already down, or maybe it was(makes crazy a little more relatable), either way I wanted to read it.  Due to the “descent into madness” it was a little hard to follow at times, but that lent itself to the losing-grip-on-reality feel.  I love the way Plath writes; even when I wasn’t enjoying the story, I was still captivated by the way she chained words together.  As a stand alone, I recommend Borrowing, but because I love how Plath writes, I’ll probably Buy as part of a collection of works.

“... I fancied you'd return the way you said,
But I grow old and I forget your name.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)
I should have loved a thunderbird instead;
At least when spring comes they roar back again.
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)”

Jarenlang stond De glazen stolp van Sylvia Plath op mijn to read-lijst, maar ik durfde er nooit aan beginnen. Als je zelf een depressie hebt gehad, is het soms te confronterend om daar ook nog eens over te gaan lezen. Ik heb het onderwerp lang gemeden. Nu las ik toch eindelijk het boek, en het was totaal anders dan ik verwachtte. Ik vond geen of weinig raakvlakken tussen haar ziekte en hoe ik die van mij ervaarde, en ergens was dat een opluchting.

Het verhaal is luchtiger en simplistischer geschreven dan ik gedacht had. Je lijkt mee te lezen in het dagboek van een studente, die stilaan afzakt in een depressie. Veel details over haar gevoelens worden er echter niet gegeven, het verhaal lijkt een vogelvlucht over het verloop van haar ziekte. 
Ik heb nu een compleet ander beeld van Plath dan wat ik van haar had na het lezen van Jij zegt het van Connie Palmen. Het boek choqueerde me minder dan ik dacht. Wel vond ik het heel treffend hoe patriarchaal de maatschappij toen nog was. Er is nog steeds geen gelijkheid tussen man en vrouw, maar bij het lezen van deze roman bedacht ik me toch dat we al veel vooruitgang geboekt hebben, en dat ik daar enorm dankbaar voor ben. (Uiteraard kan het altijd nog een pak beter.)
Ten tweede was het wraakroepend om te lezen over de toen gebruikelijke shock therapie. Onbegrijpelijk.

Jammer dat deze uitgave van het boek zo’n saaie goedkope cover heeft. Sylvia Plath verdient beter.

The Fire Within (Le Feu Follet) - Louis Malle (1963)
.
.
' I saw my life branching out before me like the green fig tree in the story. From the tip of every branch, like a fat purple fig, a wonderful future beckoned and winked. One fig was a husband and a happy home and children, and another fig was a famous poet and another fig was a brilliant professor, and another fig was Ee Gee, the amazing editor, and another fig was Europe and Africa and South America, and another fig was Constantin and Socrates and Attila and a pack of other lovers with queer names and offbeat professions, and another fig was an Olympic lady crew champion, and beyond and above these figs were many more figs I couldn't quite make out. I saw myself sitting in the crotch of this fig tree, starving to death, just because I couldn't make up my mind which of the figs I would choose. I wanted each and every one of them, but choosing one meant losing all the rest, and, as I sat there, unable to decide, the figs began to wrinkle and go black, and, one by one, they plopped to the ground at my feet. '

The Bell Jar - Sylvia Plath (1963)
.
Both these works show restless protagonists who are perennially tormented in their violent heads and who retch at the thought of mediocrity. Although living a neurotic life is not part of my plan, 'settling' is a word I hate and always will.

I'm done setting reading goals for myself. Reading has always been a form of relaxation and self-care then turned into a race against my schedule to spend more time reading & picking up the latest book. Content with finally coming to terms with the fact that I won't be reading 100 books this year & not feel bad about it. •

A portrait of the poet Sylvia Plath, the writter of the novel "The Bell Jar" as well.
Originally published under the pseudonym "Victoria Lucas" in 1963, the novel is semi-autobiographical, with the names of places and people changed. The book is often regarded as a roman a clef because the protagonist's descent into mental illness parallels Plath's own experiences with what may have been clinical depression or bipolar disorder. Plath died by suicide a month after its first UK publication. The novel was published under Plath's name for the first time in 1967 and was not published in the United States until 1971, in accordance with the wishes of both Plath's husband, Ted Huhgs, and her mother.The novel has been translated into nearly a dozen languages.
