Jean Rhys, whose real name was Ella Gwen Rees Williams, was born in 1894 in the West Indies, on the Island of Dominica, an island with a tormented and bloody history because during the 19th century, Dominica passed from a slave to a colonial society, so the dominant language remained a French patois. Rhys origins influenced her work: indeed, Dominica was an island of lush vegetation and natural beauty so in Wide Sargasso Sea dominate images of this primitive and beautiful island.
The Dominican island reminded her of Judgement Day.
