For example, when Miranda herself says, “Sir, are not you my father?” (1.2.69), she comes to the realization that she may have been lied to on many occasions for quite some time. This realization provided me with was the inspiration to subtweet Prospero. Although Miranda would never speak to her father in this manner, the pain she immediately felt would lead her to distance herself from him and say something like this. Due to the fact Miranda never imagined herself in this situation, she addresses it by speaking about Prospero in a way she never imagined she would.

The world in which the events of the novel take place is a world bounded by the Cold War on one side and the sexual war on the other… This novel is not political or historical in any narrow sense, but in looking at the madness of the world and the world of madness it forces us to consider the great question posed by all truly realistic fiction: What is reality and how can it be confronted? … Esther Greenwood’s account of her year in the bell jar is as clear and readable as it is witty and disturbing.’ Simply put, Sylvia Plath’s novel is an appalling, realistic, and intensely emotional novel about a woman falling into the grip of insanity.
