Is a womans writing different from a mans? Many scholars -- and readers -- think so, even thought here has been little examination of the way womens novels enact the theories that women theorists have posited. In Jean Rhys and the Novel asMoreIs a womans writing different from a mans? Many scholars -- and readers -- think so, even thought here has been little examination of the way womens novels enact the theories that women theorists have posited. In Jean Rhys and the Novel as Womens Text, Nancy Harrison makes an important contribution to the exchange of ideas on the writing practice of women and to the scholarship on Jean Rhys.Harrison determines what the form of a well-made womens novel discloses about the conditions of womens communication and the literary production that emerges from them.

Devoting the first part of her book to theory and general commentary on Rhyss approach to writing, she then offers perceptive readings of Voyage in the Dark, an early Rhys novel, and Wide Sargasso Sea, Rhyss masterpiece written twenty-seven years later. She shows how Rhys uses the terms of a mans discourse, then introduces a womans (or several womens) discourse as a compelling counterpoint that, in time, becomes prominent and gives each novel its thematic impact. In presenting a continuing dialogue with the dominant language and at the same time making explicit the place of a womans own language, Rhys gives us a paradigm for a new and basically moral text.Originally published in 1988.A UNC Press Enduring Edition -- UNC Press Enduring Editions use the latest in digital technology to make available again books from our distinguished backlist that were previously out of print.
