Wide Sargasso Sea Part III, Section 5 Summary

  • The red dress reminds Antoinette of the last time she saw Sandi Cosway in Spanish Town. She was wearing the red dress when Sandi had asked her to run away with him. She refused.
  • Apparently they had an affair when Rochester was away. Their last kiss is described as a "life and death kiss," and she remembers hearing a white ship whistling as they kissed.
