AGAINST SOCIETY: WOMEN?S LANGUAGE, BODY AND MADNESS IN WIDE SARGASSO SEA AND SULA

Abstract

Author(s): Mesut G├ťNEN├ç

Two most important modernist writers Jean Rhys and Toni Morrison analyze woman’s situations, madness and woman’s struggle in patriarchal society. Madness is a result of patriarchy and male dominated societies. While Jean Rhys mentions about this madness using Antoinette in her work named Wide Sargasso Sea, Toni Morrison uses Sula how a woman should express herself and should defend her rights in patriarchal society. Rhys’ character Antoinette is rejected and displaced from society because of inheritance of madness accepted in society. Antoinette has shameful and invisible life but at the same time her madness is a protestation against society. Morrison’s character struggles with male dominance, and she stands out against rooted roles and rules shaped by patriarchal society using her language and her body
