Wide Sargasso Sea- Jean Rhys

This book is told from the perspective of a marginalized literary figure you have already met this semester…how has Rhys transformed her story? Thinking about Antoinette’s childhood, cultural heritage, cultural displacement and loss of personal identity (including her name) can we make a case for her madness? What does it add to this theme of madness to have it narrated alternately by Rochester and Antoinette?
