Wide Sargasso Sea Part III, Section 6 Summary

  • Antoinette holds the red dress against herself and asks Mrs. Poole if it makes her look "unchaste," as Rochester said it did. Mrs. Poole tells her to put it away and warm herself with a grey shawl.
  • Antoinette drops the dress on the floor and compares it to a fire spreading across the room. The dress reminds her that there is something she must do, but she can't remember what.
