Paula Rego has long had a fascination with Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre and Jean Rhys’s Wide Sargasso Sea.

 

As a result, this volume is filled with highly dramatic visual responses to the texts. Twenty-five of Rego’s lithographs are reproduced in this artist’s book, along with excerpts from the novel. An eloquent and perceptive introduction by Marina Warner also examines why Brontë’s tale should have inspired Rego’s work. Above all, this book is an artwork in itself.

 

“…an emphasis on the fire in the mind and the dark outside might perhaps reveal…how Paula of all artists would respond to Jane Eyre…”

Marina Warner
