Description
Information
Jean Rhys's late, literary masterpiece, Wild Sargasso Sea , was inspired by Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre , and is set in the lush, beguiling landscape of Jamaica in the 1830s. Born into an oppressive, colonialist society, Creole heiress Antoinette Cosway meets a young Englishman who is drawn to her innocent sensuality and beauty. After their marriage disturbing rumours begin to circulate, poisoning her husband against her. Caught between his demands and her own precarious sense of belonging, Antoinette is driven towards madness. 'Rhys took one of the works of genius of the 19th century and turned it inside-out to create one of the works of genius of the 20th century.' Michele Roberts, The Times
