Sorry, this event has been cancelled.

Inspired by Jane Eyre, Jean Rhys’ novel gives a voice to ‘the mad woman in the attic’. It tells the story of a marriage between a young Creole heiress to a wealthy gentleman, and her subsequent ‘madness’. Rhys’ novel beautifully evokes the sensuality of both Antoinette and Jamaica.

This discussion-led class will explore ideas about madness, colonialism and feminism.

Please read the book beforehand (Penguin Classics).

Please note: Due to the easing of social distancing measures, this face to face course has a capacity of 12 attendees. This is set at 75% of full capacity to ensure safety for our students and tutors. We will endeavour to increase this number to full capacity in due course.
