      • " You are always calling on God," she said. "Do you believe in God?"
      • "Of course, of course I believe in the power and wisdom of my creator."
      • She raised her eyebrows and the corners of her mouth turned down in a questioning mocking way.
      • . . . "And you," I said. "Do you believe in God?"
      • "It doesn't matter," she answered calmly, "what I believe or you believe, because we can do nothing about it, we are like these." She flicked a dead moth off the table.'" [Rhys 76-77]
      • I went to parts of Coulibri that I had not seen, where there was no road, no path, no track. And if the razor grass cut my legs and arms I would think "It's better than people." Black ants or red ones, tall nests swarming with white ants, rain that soaked me to the skin -- once I saw a snake. All better than people.
      • Better. Better, better than people.
      • Watching the red and yellow flowers in the sun thinking of nothing, it was as if a door opened and I was somewhere else, something else. Not myself any longer. [16]
    • Success Criteria Skilled Writing will
      • Have a quote that links to the portrayal of the character
      • Explain how the quotation enriches the characterisation
      Excellent Writing will
      • Have a range of precise quotes that link to the portrayal of the character
      • Explanation begins to develop precise, perceptive identification of the characterisation
      • The characteristically modern anxieties present in Wide Sargasso Sea results in a female protagonist who, although existing in roughly the same time period as Jane and experiencing much of the same challenges, represents a much more modern conception of a woman. Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre and Jean Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea can each be seen as feminist texts when considering their social and historical context, but Wide Sargasso Sea presents a more post-modern form of feminism which takes into account the complexity of male-female interaction to find that efforts to transcend deep-set gender norms are nearly hopeless.
