Reviews

  • 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

  • Rhys's iconic prequel to Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre is rich in motifs and devices both modernist and postmodernist

  • Beautiful and subversive [...] the novel didn't just take inspiration from Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre, it illuminated and confronted it, challenged the narrative.

  • Wide Sargasso Sea is not just a great novel, it is many brilliant books in one
