The second installment of our online reading group is from one of my favourite writers, Jean Rhys.
But if you can I recommend you buy or borrow a copy from the library because all her short stories are such a delight.
Here are a few things to think about when reading Jean Rhys…
How does she explore being an outsider?
How does she portray power relations between men and women?
What importance do clothes have in the story?
What themes do you find interesting in the story?
Think about Rhys’s style – how does she use language?
We’ll have an online discussion on Twitter and Facebook at midday on 2nd February using the tags #modernistwomen and #petronella – see you then!
