THE ABSENT VOICE: JANE EYRE1 AND WIDE SARGASSO SEA

Abstract

Author(s): Sezgi ZTOP HANER

he heroines of Brontë’s Jane Eyre (1847) and Rhys’s Wide Sargasso Sea (1966) experience oppression and degradation due to the patriarchal and colonial subjugation in England and Jamaica during that time. Jane’s struggle against patriarchal oppression corresponds with Antoinette’s resistance to colonial subjugation in the sense that both attempt to achieve self-recognition and liberty of speech together with cultural and economic liberty. While Brontë’s main concern in Jane Eyre is to articulate her displeasure against gender and class inequality in England, Rhys’s Wide Sargasso Sea focuses on the racial inequality in Jamaica. As a consequence, Brontë and Rhys present two different ideologies and thereby two different social reality that indicate each authors’ apprehension and world view.
