Example text

But it had gone wild. The paths were overgrown and a smell of dead flowers mixed with the fresh living smell. Underneath the tree ferns, tall as forest tree ferns, the light was green. Orchids flourished out of reach or for some reason not to be touched. One was snaky looking, another like an octopus with long thin brown tentacles bare of leaves hanging from a twisted root. Twice a year the octopus orchid flowered – then not an inch of tentacle showed. It was a bell-shaped mass of white, mauve, deep purples, wonderful to see.

A paraquel is a text “in which one author continues or fills in the gaps in a well-known classic by another” (12). And this is precisely what Jean Rhys does in Wide Sargasso Sea, a rewriting of Charlotte Brontë’s most celebrated novel. Rhys’s appropriation of the English literary canon opens up the mother text to alternative values and perspectives, altering the way we think about the events in Brontë’s novel, undermining its rigid equations for right and wrong (Friedman 121), and contributing in this way to a sense of openness.
