I love this one and I love Rebecca... Hadn't thought about their similarities, though!

It was a passage in WSS where Antoinette dreams of visiting the burned down Coulibri that I thought of it. And both are trapped by their marriages, although ostensibly Rebecca's narrator fares far better than Antoinette. So much for me to chew over with WSS -- really fab.

Antoinette has her similarities to Rebecca herself though (and Jane to the narrator in Rebecca). I see Rebecca as a character who's judged harshly based on gender expectations at the time - her appetite for sex seems to be a large part of her villainy. I'll bet she could be rehabilitated as well as Bertha is here.

Me, too! Love both WSS and Rebecca, but had not considered the similarities until your review.
