Jean Rhys, woman in passage : a critical study of the novels of Jean Rhys by Helen Nebeker( Book )
1 edition published in 1981 in Undetermined and held by 1 library worldwide
The emergence of Jean Rhys as a major literary discovery of the twentieth century, after years of obscurity, is now almost common academic knowledge. In this second edition of what is acknowledged to have been the first complete study of the novels of Rhys by a woman-- not a feminist-- scholar, Nebeker uncovers "levels of complexity, technical and thematic, which lead into shadowy mazes of Freudian symbols and Jungian archetype. These complexities of symbol and archtype culminate in the final genius of Rhys's last and most acclaimed novel, Wide Sargasso Sea, where as Nebeker demonstrates, Rhys herself emerges as Myth-maker, revealing the archetypal female consciousness"--Back cover
