Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys
Revising Brontë’s limited perspective of Bertha in Jane Eyre as less than human, living as a caged animal. Jean Rhys wrote a radical response to the characterization of the madwoman in the attic.
Rhys wrote and published Wide Sargasso Sea in 1966, the pinnacle of her literary career and a major feminist revisionist novel. Haunted by Brontë’s portrayal of Bertha, Rhys said, “I thought I’d try to write her a life.”
