Five Fascinating Facts about Jean Rhys

Five Fascinating Facts about Jean Rhys is another interesting post from a regular contributor to Interesting Literature.  I remember reading Wide Sargasso Sea and being quite moved by it, appreciating Bertha’s side of the story.  As much as I also loved Jane Eyre, I always felt unsatisfied with the portrayal of Bertha.  Having grown up around mental illness, I knew that the madwoman in the attic had a deeper story to tell than the one Charlotte Bronte gave her.

    Strangest thing, but that is one book (Sargasso) that simply creeps me out. I really didn’t enjoy it very much. I love “Jane Eyre.” And let’s face it, I love thousands of books ;). But not this one. It scares me.
