Act of Survival: The Revision of Bronte's Jane Eyre in Jean Rhys' Wide Sargasso Sea.

Auther : Abdulaziz Alabdullah

J. Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea invites us to revisit the sombre truth that women's literary works were once, and still perhaps are, misread, misjudged, misinterpreted. This has led some feminist writers to resort to 'revision' as an 'act of survival'. Revision calls for women to look back 'with fresh eyes' to redefine and reread old texts from a fresh critical angle. The present paper develops the idea, attempting to re-examine Jane Eyre within Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea in terms of a kind of mysterious kinetics of de jà vu. The paper will explore the idea of revision in these two important women's literary works.
