More women writers than we might think took up the pen in the early days of the American nations. The following early American women writers, all born in the 1700s (with that exception of Anne Bradstreet, born in the early 1600s) wrote prolifically and passionately despite the risks to their reputations.

While providing close readings of the texts and of their language, Sylvie Maurel examines Jean Rhys's writings through the frames of feminist criticism and literary theory. She explores the various forms of feminine dissent at work in Rhys's fiction, and Rhys is shown to develop an ethics of subversion through resistance to closure, irony, parody and her daring rewriting of Jane Eyre. Each novel is treated as an aesthetic whole, with substantial reference to Rhys's short stories for a more penetrating insight into her fictional universe.
