The Bell Jar

Symbolism, Imagery, Allegory

It's pretty obvious from the title that the bell jar is a huge symbol in the book. So huge that it deserves its own section. So we're listing the bell jar under "Symbolism, Imagery, Allegory" just to let you know that you should take a look at our "What's Up with the Title?" for more on this important symbol.
