Abstract:

With Jean Rhys: A Study of the Short Fiction, Cheryl Alexander Malcolm and David Malcolm provide the first full-length critical analysis of Rhys's contributions to the short story genre. Maintaining that Rhys's overriding interest was the outsider - "the underdog, the normally silenced, the excluded, the ignored" - the Malcolms examine the stories from the perspective of this motif. Selected stories - among them "Illusion," "Mannequin," and "Let Them Call It Jazz" - are given in-depth treatment, as are the heretofore neglected technical aspects of Rhys's work: narration, style, plot, action, and setting.
