Description - Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys
Jean Rhys astonished readers with her passionate and heartbreaking work. In it, she reimagines one of fiction's most mysterious characters: the madwoman in the attic from Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre. Set in the Caribbean, Antoinette Cosway, a sensual and protected young woman, is sold into marriage to the prideful Rochester. Rhys portrays her amid a society so driven by hatred, so skewed in its sexual relations, that it can literally drive a woman out of her mind.
