    To truly understand Wide Sargasso Sea in all its complexity, you have to understand its dialogue with Jane Eyre, one of the great classics of Victorian literature. Rhys counters with a far more complicated, human Antoinette – compared to Charlotte Brontë's beastly, monstrous Bertha Mason – but there are also many affinities and parallels between the two novels.
