Wide Sargasso Sea Author: Jean Rhys Publisher: New York: Norton, When Rochester and Antoinette first arrive to their honeymoon house, Rochester smiles at a little boy and the boy begins to cry. Why you come here?
Jamaica is unwelcoming towards Rochester, and the hostility of the country does not come from his imagination. Even after being thrust into a shocking new culture, Rochester manages to open his eyes to the beauty of Jamaica.
In his letter to his father he mentions that it is very beautiful there. Cloves I could smell and cinnamon, roses and orange blossom. He does not criticize everything about Jamaica, and he stops to acknowledge and admire beauty in the strange area he has been placed in.
He tries to find some reassurance in his situation.
This passage describes how Rochester perceives the island and how it is not what he is used to. When the environment is so new, one is not going to feel comfortable and at ease. He does not understand the customs of the country, and even the natural order of the moon and the stars seems strange to him.
After being put into such a bizarre village, surrounded by its mysterious inhabitants, of course he would have doubts and suspicions since the island and his wife are keeping secrets from him.
Rochester finds his identity in England, and being taken out from his homeland affects him deeply. Rochester is very distant with Antoinette and that is because they come from different cultures. It is all a big cultural misunderstanding. Being in an alien world, Rochester desires to keep a grasp on his identity. Only the English tastes and aversions that shape it continue to remind him of his cultural heritage and the colonial power to which it is linked.
Rochester is not in the wrong by being unable to conform to the ways of Jamaica, because none of the islanders can even comprehend the English culture. Antoinette and Christophine go so far as to mock the English culture, when they cannot even understand what it is like.
Rochester attempts to compare the red earth in Jamaica to the earth in England and Antoinette mocks him. It is interesting how she says that she knows them when she really does not at all. The women ridicule Rochester for his English heritage.
The two very different cultures are unable to understand each other. Rochester is a victim of his circumstance. He entered into the situation not because he wanted to drastically change his life, but because he had no other option.
As the second-born son to his father, Rochester was left with no inheritance and agreed to marry Antoinette so that he would be able to survive financially.
Mason, married to a girl who perhaps has a taint of colour and perhaps madness in her blood. The act of marrying Antoinette for financial gain was actually selfless in a way. He is trying to please his father. No begging letters, no mean requests.
Rochester simply has to make decisions according to his birthright. The way that Antoinette treats Rochester is a signal to the fact that she is undeniably going insane. Antoinette went crazy before she even met Rochester.
I always thought it would be better if I died.
