Largely forgotten until the publication, in 1966, of Wide Sargasso Sea, her Caribbean retelling of Jane Eyre, Rhys is now increasingly recognized as a writer whose works are central texts for the imaginative re-examination of gender and colonial power relations.

Helen Carrs account draws on both recent feminist and post-colonial theory, and places Rhyss work in the context of modernist and postmodernist writing. Whilst all Rhyss novels are autobiographical, it is a mistake, Carr argues, to see them simply in individual terms: Rhys uses the material of her own life to structure a devastating critique of the greed and cruelty of the Establishment world, both of Europe and of Empire.
