After Mrs Rochester

By Polly Teale
Imprint: Nick Hern Books
Paperback : 9781854597458, 96 pages, April 2004


Jean Rhys was obsessed with Jane Eyre—and more particularly with Bertha Mason, the first Mrs. Rochester and the "madwoman in the attic. " Placing Bertha on stage throughout as Jean’s alter ego, Polly Teale’s remarkable dramatization of Rhys’ life gives full vent to this obsession—which was to prove the catalyst for The Wild Sargasso Sea.
