Abstract [en]

The essay investigates hybridity in Jean Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea with a focus on the main character Antoinette. Homi K Bhabha's theory of hybridity provides a way to analyze Antoinette's predicament as an outsider and threat to both the Caribbean society she is living in and her English husband. The aim of the essay is to examine the alienation and rejection of Antoinette in the light of her hybridity.
