a different perspective
Wide Sargasso Sea provided a different perspective on the characters in Jane Eyre, in particular Antoinette. It helped me ruminate the characters Rochester and Antoinette, however,Rhys seemed to persecute Rochester by portraying him as a selfish cold hearted man (which after reading Jane Eyre, I think is false). Rhys made Antoinette the victim of this supposed monster. I don't think Bronte wanted to portray him in that way, that in actuality he was not a bad person, but rather his environs and numerous unfortunate circumstances influenced him and his actions. He was the victim in Jane Eyre. ALthough Rhy's style is more simple than that of Bronte's, her book was more confusing, maybe because of the several changes in points of view. Overall though, Wide Sargasso Sea was an ok book.
