Jean Rhys : Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published in 1966, Jean Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea rewrites Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre (1847) from the perspective of Bertha Mason, the white Creole woman who becomes Rochester's mad first wife. With its complex narrative strategies and haunting prose, Rhys's novel both captures and disorientates its readers, taking them into a realm of sexual and racial paranoia, shadowed by the half-acknowledged memory of British colonial slavery in the Caribbean." "In this Icon Readers' Guide, Carl Plasa provides a survey and analysis of the most stimulating critical responses to Wide Sargasso Sea. The opening chapter outlines initial reactions to the novel from English and Caribbean critics, charting the differences between them. Chapter Two explores Wide Sargasso Sea's dialogue with Jane Eyre and the theoretical questions it has raised. Chapter Three examines how critics have assessed the racial politics of Rhys's text, while Chapter Four features discussion of the novel's African Caribbean cultural legacy. In Chapter Five, the focus is historical, as critics read Wide Sargasso Sea both in terms of its moment of production and the early Victorian period in which it is set. Throughout, Carl Plasa contextualizes and clarifies the critical exchanges which this daring and dramatic novel has provoked."--Jacket
