Les vurderinger

«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.»

, Paris Review

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

Jean Rhys was born in Dominica in 1894. After arriving in England aged sixteen, she became a chorus girl and drifted between different jobs before moving to Paris, where she started to write in the late 1920s. She published a story collection and four novels, after which she disappeared from view and lived reclusively for many years. In 1966 she made a sensational comeback with her masterpiece, Wide Sargasso Sea, written in difficult circumstances over a long period. Rhys died in 1979.
