READ Wide Sargasso Sea

Wide Sargasso SeaS of madness in her family poison his mind against her He forces Antoinette to conform to his rigid Victorian idea. “After Leaving Mr Mackenzie” was so terrific that I ordered two books by Jean Rhys to read“Good Morning Midnight” will be next to read“Wide Sargasso Sea” was Rhys most famous book uoted as a masterpiecebringing the fascinating character Antoinette Cosway from Charlotte Brontë’s “Jane Eyre” out of the dark atticand putting her center stage I agree the entire concept for this book was brilliant fascinating and it worked What an incredible risk Rhys made Truly was amazing Funny I had just recently read “Mona in Three Act” by Op de Beeck Griet and my complaint was it was 400 pages long This book half its length had twice as much lasting power The introduction by Edwidge Danticat put me in the right framework to plow aheadI became interested with what Danticat was fascinated with Edwidge Danticat had a Caribbean background as Rhys did She wrote“The fact that Bertha Antoinette Mason—the first MrsRochester—was a Creole a white person who was born and raised on a Caribbean island fascinated me I was sad though that we readers spent so little time with her and that when we did see her she was either raging mad or setting things on fire There must be something I told myself How did Bertha Mason come to be confined in our old house in England Was she madly in love or simply mad Had Mr Rochester once loved her the way he loves Jane Eyre”And so the story begins with Antoinette Cosway narrating PART ONEI READ THE FIRST THREE SENTENCES SEVERAL TIMES“They say when trouble comes close ranks and so the white people did But we were not in their ranks” The Jamaican ladies had never approved of my mother ‘because she pretty like pretty self’ Christophine said”Complex race and gender relations revealed themselves right awayThis theme continues throughout Antoinette is later called “white cockroach” and “white nigger” along with themes of emotional repression slaves slave owners frustration and desperation class gender love hate sensuality jealousy abuse feminism possessiveness mental illness control Mr Rochester re naming Antoinette Bertha madness and a relationship between money lust sex and power Mr Rochester marries Antoinettepartly for moneybut also in part to have power of herand partly for lust It’s such a doomed marriage Antoinette tries to ride out the racial tensions and family strugglesPART TWO is the longest section narrated mostly by Mr Rochester He tries to turn Antoinette into something she isn’t PART THREE the shortest section perhaps the saddest part of the entire book but we see the parallels to PART ONEThe characters want freedomcharacters were often drunkthe Caribbean was a dream for Mr RochesterEngland a dream for AntoinetteBut DREAMScan literally drive a person mad Many great reviews already writtenI completely agree this was a phenomenal book I read it slow I re read parts several times I reflected on it during the times I wasn’t reading it often It’s a slim book that I also plan to read again It’s simply haunting in my thoughts The female characters Christophine a former slave and Antoinette both will remain in my thoughts in much the same way Jane Eyre has Loved it and agree with othersthis was a phenomenal tragic novel Once again proving a thin novel of 200 pages can have power than books twice its length
