Summary
"Jean Rhys has long been central to debates in feminist, modernist, Caribbean, British and post-colonial writing. Elaine Savory's study, which refers widely to Rhys criticism and goes beyond it, is a critical reading of Rhys's entire ouevre, including the stories and autobiography, and is informed by recently released unpublished manuscripts by Rhys. Designed both for the serious scholar and those unfamiliar with Rhys's writing, Savory's book insists on the importance of a Caribbean-centred approach to Rhys, and shows how this context profoundly affects her literary style."--Jacket
