Jean Rhys: The Complete Novels (Voyage in the Dark, Quartet, After Leaving Mr Mackenzie, Good Morning, Midnight, Wide Sargasso Sea)
Jean Rhys The Complete Novels - Voyage in the Dark, Quartet, After Leaving Mr Mackenzie, Good Morning, Midnight, Wide Sargasso Sea Author:Rhys, Jean The first two novels follow Jean Rhys's life closely, Anna Morgan, in "Voyage in the Dark", shares with her a West Indian childhood, her experience as a chorus girl, and her first love affair; Marya Zelli, in "Quartet", follows Jean Rhys to Paris, where, like her creator, she sees her husband sent to prison and is drawn into a disturbing "menage... more » a trois" with a writer and his wife. The two older women, Julia Martin in "After Leaving Mr. Machenzie" and Sasha Jensen in "Good Morning, Midnight", take us deeper. Julia must face the kind of "respectable" life into which she cannot or will not fit. And Sasha finally is brought into confrontation with her innermost self. On the surface, "Wide Sargasso Sea" - brilliant reinterpretation of the events of "Jane Eyre" from the alternating viewpoints of Mr. Rochester and his "mad wife" - may seem the least autobiographical, but it too is, in Diana Athill's words, "as closely linked to her life as her other work, through on a different level." Contents include: Voyage in the Dark / Quartet / After Leaving Mr Mackenzie / Good Morning, Midnight / Wide Sargasso Sea.
