    Perto do coração selvagem de Clarice Lispector (Petroglyph)
    Petroglyph: Even though Near to the wild heart was written some twenty years prior to Wide Sargasso Sea, these two share numerous features: the interior monologue, the lyricism, the heroine mostly living inside her skull, the central character who doesn’t see a way out of their mental frustrations with life. Lispector kicked all that up a few notches, but to me these two belong close together on my mental shelves.… (mais)

I found this novel entrancing and dreamlike. It's not often that a book read for class captures my attention like this, but I did not want to put it down. I'm glad this is the novel I chose to do a presentation on, because the interplay between imperialism, race, gender and class was brilliant. Even more brilliant were the characters, each of them flawed in their own way, but I could feel empathy for each of them, except for Rochester. This book was amazing. ( )

Wide Sargasso Sea was such a pleasant surprise. It was a bookclub choice from an internet forum I enjoy, and I picked it up without much knowledge of what it was about, other than the notorious Jane Eyre connection. Fan fiction is a much older concept than many of us had previously considered. But, calling it fanfiction is too narrow a definition.
Jean Rhys novella – it is quite a short book – wrestles with the human necessity of belonging, and the dire cost of not belonging. The luxuriant vegetation and climate of the Caribbean, the economic turmoil brought up by the abolition of slavery, and the distrust between European and Creole, white and black in a time ripe with revenge from past wrongs is all brought together as we follow “Antoinette/Bertha” from childhood to marriage, madness and death.
In a strange coincidence, I read “Bury the Chains”, by Adam Hochschild just a few weeks ago. In this account of the civil movement to abolish slavery in the British Empire, a few chapters are devoted to the atrocities perpetrated by slave owners in the Caribbean. And so, I read with even more interest about the relationship between former slave owners and the newly freed population.
Jean Rhys was born in the island of Dominica 60 years after the time when the events in the book take place, but her descriptions carry such depth and understanding that I can only wonder that distress must have permeated all interaction between the two communities for many generations to follow – how could it be any different after all?
But, this book is not only about the relationship dynamics within the islanders. It makes us question madness, cultural crash, colonization, machismo, sexuality and fear of sexuality, superstitions…
I did feel torn between 4 or 5 stars, because as beautiful as the prose is, the sequence of events left me feeling lost a couple of times. I had to turn back a few pages, wondering that I must had skipped a page or two, just to find out that the narration had “jumped”. But, I wonder, in a book where the characters are going mad, could the narrative be simple and linear? Also, the third part of the book – Bertha locked in an attic in England – seemed a bit contrived. It makes me speculate how the book would be like without the Jane Eyre connection. Would it had been a stronger book if we followed this character without the knowledge of where she was heading? At the end I decided on the 5 stars because its small shortcomings - if I can call them that - were greatly overshadowed by its strengths, and because it is a book that will remain with me for a long time…

This is my first time writing a review.

I loved the plot it was interesting to get another perspective to Jane Eyre. However, the hardest part of reading this book was the layout. There was no transition between point of views in the story. I had a hard time figuring out who's point of view I was reading and had to reread certain parts several times to figure it out. The story was great and I would recommend it if you would like a prequel to Jane Eyre. ( )

Review from 2012

Gripping, poetic, beautiful. Very, very sad. The different points of view offered interesting insight into the minds of the characters and yet still concealed so much. It made me hate Rochester, when usually he is shown as a hero. ( )

It is perfectly possible to read Wide Sargasso Sea without any knowledge of Jane Eyre but it helps if you have. It has been many years since I read Jane Eyre and I now feel a great urge to revisit after reading this extraordinary novel. The prose is quite magical and it has a dreamlike quality which at times is a little difficult to penetrate but it all adds to the atmosphere and this is undoubtedly a book dripping in atmosphere. Rochester is a very different man here from the one I remember in Jane Eyre and at the moment I feel nothing but sympathy for poor mad Bertha/Antoinette. Powerful stuff indeed. ( )
