Picture Post: Reading Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar at McLean

This just felt wrong to do, but could not be avoided. Reading Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar in front of North Belknap House, McLean Hospital.

Peter,

Just ... perfect!

Were you there today or is this an old shot?

Peter K Steinberg said...

Yo girl! It was today.

Looka like a gorgeous day. Did Mrs. Tomolillo happen to ever pop out from behind the bushes??

Peter K Steinberg said...

The day was unparalleled in its loveliness.

Mrs. Tomolillo just popped out another baby and is in recovery; Mrs. Mole just sat there silently.

Miss Mucky-Muck was, despite being shocked and appalled, eating her two kinds of beans.

You make me laugh :)

Ha! Love it! :)

Interesting idea Peter, but it calls for a series. Have yourself snapped at as many places as possible in relation to Bell Jar ... those awful library steps, etc. etc. etc.

Peter K Steinberg said...

Thanks for your comment, George! It is like the gnome-knapped garden gnome. Great idea. Might do this.

I agree with George Fitzgerald... that would be fabulous to have those snaps! And, I dare say, SP would get a kick out of it.

I'm seeing a little book ... 30 or so photos w/descriptions from the novel as captions. Even if self-published, like Edward Gorey did for his early works!

Oh yes! Please do this! Take me with you on your travels
