The major concern of this paper is to show how the racism is a big issue during the colonialism period. The novel Wide Sargasso Sea is written by Jean Rhys in order to highlight multiple issues like gender discrimination, the opposite nature of male and females, how the desires of the central characters not fulfilled and how all these things lead to the madness. The entire identity of the main character has been shattered and taken away from her. Antoinette was a Creole girl and Rochester was an English white man still they got married and the consequence is so dangerous that Antoinette had to suffer for lifetime. Let us discuss what we have chosen to discuss.
