Abstract

Both Jane Eyre and Wide Sargasso Sea, which are novels written by Charlotte Bronte and Jean Rhys, represent the women in any historical period of protesting patriarchy and oppression. This paper is a comparative study of the female character, Bertha Mason, in these two novels from a feminist perspective. Although Wide Sargasso Sea appeared as a prequel of Jane Eyre, Rhys presented a more advancing and radical feminist thought in Wide Sargasso sea, and Bertha Mason is a typical representation of woman as victim of both patriarchy and colonialism.
