    Robert Kapanjie says:

    The Bell Jar is her her only novel it is a semi autobiographical account of her life—a good read. She was mainly a poet. She endured major depression for many years, at times requiring electroconvulsive therapy. She died of carbon monoxide poisoning as a result of coal gas, which was still in use in the U K at the time. In the U S our heating gas is natural and the threat of carbon monoxide poisoning from it is minimal compared to coal gas. Natural gas is odourless and explosive, that is the reason hydrogen sulfide is added so that it can be detected via olfaction should a leak occur. She was a great woman who lead a tragic life, her fate sealed by the separation from her philandering husband.
