Rhys, Jean after Charlotte Bronte - Wide Sargasso Sea - ( Item 125865 )

Published in London by Folio Society. 1993. First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. Bound by Cambridge University Press in dark green and pale green cloths, divided vertically down the centre of each board, with a design in green by Daunt who hand cut the spine lettering; green-blue endpapers. 12 leaves of lithographic 'plates' by Chris Daunt. Rhys was "fascinated by what might be called the 'missing story in Charlotte Bronte's 'Jane Eyre' - that of the first Mrs Rochester, the madwoman in the attic who destroysThornefield Hall, and herself, by fire. Bertha Rochester is, of course, from the West Indies, and that was obviously the starting point for a dazzling imaginative feat. Jean Rhys creates a childhood for Charlotte Bronte's terrifying, imprisoned lunatic, and yet leaves completion to our knowledge of the Victorian novel. It is a triumph." Illustrated by Chris Daunt.
